Temple Items

Shinto is Japan's ancient indigenous religion, with many nature spirits and mythological figures. Shinto is also an essential symbol of the nation, closely linked to the emperor. Shinto shrines and items are usually simple in design, made of unfinished wood and natural materials.

Buddhist shrines and accessories originated in India and China, of course, and  generally more colorful and ornate in style. The two religions get along well together, and can  be represented in the same shrine, and even in the same deity. These shrines, figures, deities; the shishi temple lions, baku, and other heavenly guardians provide valuable spiritual and cultural perspectives, and are very engaging artworks.
