Temple & Shrine: Deciphering the codes
Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines are iconic emblems of Japan found in their tens of thousands throughout the nation’s cities and countryside. Intrinsic to Japan’s physical and emotional fabric they are inevitably an essential element of any visitor’s experience of the nation. Yet, what are the differences between a temple or a shrine? How do they represent and reflect Japan’s history and culture? And, to take an old adage, if you have seen one have you seen them all?

To answer these questions and much more, Walk Japan Tour Leader Paul Tierney leads us through the enigmatic realm of Japan’s temples and shrines on a lively journey deciphering their spiritual, historical and architectural codes; a presentation that provides the keys to a fascinating and vital realm at the heart of Japan.

This webinar will be 60 minutes followed by Q&As.
