If you’re planning a trip to Japan, you’ll almost certainly have Shinto shrine or Buddhist temple visit on your itinerary—and if not, you should. If you want a one-of-a-kind souvenir, a goshuin is just what you’re looking for!

My name is Damian, and my interest in Japan goes back more than two decades. I am fascinated by the history, culture and language and their interrelation. I have a particular interest in Shinto and Buddhism and greatly enjoy traveling the country to visit the myriad shrines and temples (and collecting goshuin while I'm there). I also enjoy tasting the seemingly endless variety of local food specialties as well as photographing the spectacular natural views and charming old buildings. Japan is a beautiful country in so many ways. I hope you can come experience it!
