Such knowledge will greatly improve your level of enjoyment. If you don't know what is inside the shrine (or temple), you will soon lose enthusiasm. Also remember. Green Shinto.

I said this to my other half before we went to Tokyo “save the space” I said “pack something else”. But no in the case they went only to stay there for the next 11 days. What a waste I could have packed that extra pair of shoes I really wanted to take.

Kyoto Foodie: Where and what to eat in Kyoto. Odakyu Electric Railway. Kyoto Restaurant Guide. Make Your Own Shinto Shrine. Hi all, As part of my last trip to Japan in August 2012, I visited a famous Shinto shrine named Yushima Tenmangu near Ueno Park.1 I visited there in 2010, and prayed that I would pass the JLPT N2 exam, and after 2 years I finally succeeded. So, per Shinto custom, I returned to offer thanks and express gratitude.
While there, I picked up an ofuda (お札), which is something you can sometimes get at Shinto shrines. It’s basically a large card you can put into a Shinto home altar, or kamidana (神棚) and is considered a manifestation of that particular kami. Shinto teaches about the ability for kami to be divided infinitely, so that each “piece” is just another manifestation of that kami, and perfectly valid for an altar. Now, usually, people visit Buddhist temples and Shinto Shrines and get a charm or omamori for luck, protection, or just as a charming souvenir.
