Kamidana is home shrine household altar shelf of gods.The kamidana typically placed high on a wall and contains a wide variety of items related to Shinto style ceremonies. We offer to gods fresh water, rice after making new, Japanese sake and Sakaki that is special plant for gods every early morning before we have breakfast. After that we wish our peaceful. Recently Japanese life style is getting changed, so some people don’t have kamidana in their house. But maybe their parents have it in their home.

    Hmm, this is like the family altar in Chinese tradition. The gods and then the ancestors beneath them. Incense, small cup of tea and a kind of rice is offered every morning. But you are right these days we don’t have this in the house anymore!
