Shinto Shrine of Shusse Inari in America, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is planning to start a Supporter Club program to introduce Japanese culture, Shinto to a wide range of people and raise funds to bring the first Shinto Shrine to the Los Angeles area since World War II. Initially, we are planning to have a pop-up/mobile Shinto Shrine so we can visit your area, and you can experience Japanese culture, and show your appreciation and pay your respects to the nature spirits. Later, we will build a permanent Shinto Shrine where we can hold annual Omatsuri and various services as well as wedding ceremonies and funeral services.

The first assistance we would like to ask of our Supporter Club is for help in choosing its name:

Shinto Inari
