My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An excellent guide to the most interesting Shinto shrines in Japan, with a very complete introduction about Shinto, Shinto architecture, etc. Shinto shrines so far have played second fiddle to Buddhist temples, so this guide is very welcome. Although there are usually no statues or gardens, and you can't enter the buildings, Shinto shrines can give visitors a feeling of great purity with their gracious architecture and the beautiful natural locations in which they are often situated.
