Internment at shrine
- I'm new here and wish to ask: is there any way that I, as an American
Shintoist, can arrange for my ashes to be interred at a Shinto shrine
in Japan(preferably Tokyo) when I pass on? Any contact info w/shrines
is very appreciated!
- Dear CJ Nicastro
I am afraid that what you ask for isn't really possible.
As you se.
Shinto means : the Ways of Gods(Kami). We are not talking about a
Christian sect with Christian traditions.
and therefore the shinto shrines are ONLY designated to the worship of
the Kami. therefore there is no cementary connected/related to any
shrine. Funerals have always been done without participation of shinto
priesters. this is changing abit these years as the funerals give a
that is why the Buddhist funerals ceremonies are used - people don't
want to do it themselves anymore asd they should being pure shintoists.
love and light
