Notice regarding source of the information on this website:
Please note that the photos, videos images in this web site are personally taken by me during my visits to various cities and temples. The links to the YouTube videos are presented directly from my YouTube Channel "Enchanting Japan
". These videos are created and assembled by me.
Where needed I have got the images and information from the temple brochures. Some of the textual information is obtained by researching resources that are freely available on the web. Websites like http://www.japan-guide.com
, helped me a lot in researching about the names, locations, train routes to the locations etc. I hope my website would evolve as one of those websites and help other enthusiasts with information about Temples and Shrines of Japan. I always refer to "Japan Encyclopedia" book for more information about any topic related to Japan. This book is published by Harvard University Press
. If you are interested to know more about Japanese culture and history, this book is a good reference.
I have also studied Japanese language for about four years and still learning. This makes me conversational in Japanese and helps me with my travels in Japan. If you are in New York and would like to learn Japanese language, please visit Japan Society's Language Center. Here is their web site: http://www.japansociety.org/.
