The Trip Creator

Originally, I worked as a PR and advertisement professional in one of the leading advertising agency in Japan. However, after being obsessed with the charm of Shinto, I resigned from the company and went on to study Shinto, acquiring the qualification of a priest. I am now serving as a priest at several shrines and researching about ancient Japanese language "Yamato Kobotoba".

The shrine headquarters, which is the general organization of Shinto, expresses the shrine as "Japanese Faith" instead of "Religous".Yes, indeed. Shinto has a unique way of thinking that distinguishes it from other culture. I would like to tell you about its charming points. I can guide the shrine while lecturing about Shintoism, which tends to be difficult and abstract, in a easy-to-understand way. Since I am a priest, it is possible to provide the experience of shrine ritual held in the shrine too.I am also providing a tour in Shibuya to understand about Shinto deeply.

I can also guide you to enjoy the traditional festival as much as possible.(Did you know that Japanese traditional festival "Matsuri" is organized by the shrine?) If you are interested in Shinto underlying in the Japanese culture, please contact me.By understanding the way of Shintoism, next time when you visit a shrine during a trip to Japan, you will definitely have a different feeling.
