From Friday, May 1st, Shinto Shrine of Shusse Inari in America will begin holding monthly Tsukinami-sai Shinto services to show respect and appreciation and ask for blessings from the nature spirits. We plan to stream the service live on YouTube starting at 12:00pm on the channel “ShintoInari”. We hope that you can pray with us wherever you are at the time.
Since we have two new members for our Sukeikai membership, we will combine the Tsukinami-sai with the celebration of their induction. Also, since we have four members who will be having a birthday this month, we will hold a birth-month Kigan Gokito blessing service after the Tsukinami-sai after the conclusion of the livestream.
A Friendly reminder! We are going to close the Support Club name Survey by the end of this month (April 30th) . So far we got 75 responses. Arigato gozaimasu for your participation! If you have not submitted yet, please do so now!

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:

Passing along eco-conscious traditions to the next generation.
Shinto is a mindset and way of living with respect for nature, living things and our ancestors, and it has long been recognized as Japan’s cultural root. Unlike Buddhism, Christianity, or other religions, Shinto has no holy texts, and there is no individual founder. It is said that Shinto has been practiced for more than 2,000 years.
One of the most important elements of Shinto is paying respect and seeking harmony between people and nature, among our families, communities, and the world. In today’s society, the need to strive for these goals has become more apparent than ever before.
We hold various events introducing the traditional Japanese eco-conscious way of life so that future generations can enjoy nature as we do. Details about Shinto and these events can be found on our Newsletter, website, and social media.
Please join and enjoy our events!!
Stay safe and well!
May the Kami-sama be with you!
