Have you ever heard of “Goshuin” before?
“Goshuin” means vermilion red seals or stamps of Japanese shirines and temples.
This is a book called ” Goshuin-cho” (Book for collection of shrine or temple seals)
We bring the “Goshuin-cho” to the shrines(or temples) when we go to worship.
Those red seals from each shrines or temples are the proofs of our visitation.
It may sounds like a stamp rally.
Most shrines or temples have their original red seals!!
You can ask a chief priest to put a red seal on your “Goshuin-cho” for only about 300 yen( about 3 dollars).
These are my collection－
I enjoy those beautiful handwritten calligraphy on my “Goshuin-cho“,they are sooo special!
