Shinto Shrines in Japan: An Introduction

While filming the tenth video in the Beginner Buddhism series, we also had some time to film a smaller video on visiting Shinto shrines in Japan:

This was a famous Shinto shrine very close to Setagaya Kannon-ji, called Komatsunagi Shrine (駒繋神社). Similar to the Buddhism videos, this video is an introduction to etiquette and what you can expect to see in a Shinto shrine.

The film was kind of impromptu since it was after lunch and before we resumed filming the Buddhist video. But it seemed like a good opportunity, so we did it anyway, and I think the video turned out pretty well.

Once again, thanks to fellow blogger “John L” from Buddha and Tea for his help.
