What to expect

• Part of the tradition when visiting a shrine is to throw coins into the offering box; 5 yen is a perfectly acceptable amount (considered lucky), but you can choose for yourself how much to give • Please note the activity schedule doesn't allow for bathroom breaks • This experience is not available on days the shrine holds occasional festivals or other events; the host will inform you if any event clashes with your booking request
