Sakamoto Hachiman Shrine Reopened to Visitors

On September 12, Sakamoto Hachimangu Shrine resumed visitor services following six months of closure due to the new coronavirus’s spread. The temporary closure was initiated considering the average age of the ujiko (shrine parishioners who operate visitor offices), over seventy. For the time being, services including issuance of goshuin (proof of pilgrimage) stamps and omamori charms are available only on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Source: RKB
