Goshuincho – The Japan Temple/Shrine stamp book

Primary tabs

Ever since first visiting Japan in 2011 I have always wanted to get a Goshuincho or “honourable stamp/seal book” used by people visiting shrines or temples. I finally got one during my trip to Mount Fuji at the Arakura Sengen Shrine in Yamanashi Prefecture after falling in love with the design. I, of course, got the stamp at the  Arakura Sengen Shrine and also at the  Fuji Hongu Sengen Taisha; the shrine at the top of Mount Fuji. Here I am now plotting my trek across Japan to acquire more stamps while kicking myself because I should have gotten it earlier and might have to revisit a few places.
