The goshuin stamp (Temple Seal) In Takayama

Do you know Goshuin? (御朱印) Goshuin is proof that you have been to shrine or temple.

The name of shrine or temple that you visited and the date are written on Goshuincho.

Goshuin has different designs for each shrine and temple. It is cool!

Why don't you collect it in Japan?
 



1. How To Get Goshuin

Step1 : Get the Goshuin-Cho (= Goshuin Stamp Book)

 
You can buy Goshuin-Cho (御朱印帳) in bookstores , shrines, temples or souvenir shops.




Step2 : Pray at the shrine or temple

Goshuin is proof that you have prayed at that place.

So pray shrine or temple before you get the Goshuin.

==The way to pray==

Temple : https://youtu.be/mpF0BVKm2n8



Step3 : Go to the office of the temple / shrine to get Goshuin.


Just Open the Goshuin-Cho and pass it to the staff.
They will write the beautiful stamp for you.

*Almost shrines & temples open 9am - 4pm.

 

Step 4 : Pay money and Say Thank you.

The price of the stamp is said to be based on “your own feeling” .

But nomally Japanese people pay 300JPY - 500JPY for one stamp.

 *It is better to bring coins. They can't tell how much is "your own feeling" is.

 Don't forget to say thank you in Japanese. "Arigatou Gozaimasu!"
