I am new to any kind of forum, but I thought I would introduce myself and see where this goes! I am SMiles and I have joined here in hopes of furthering my knowledge about all things Japan. I had the good fortune to live in Japan for a year some 30 years ago. The culture was amazing and I brought it back with me to Tennessee. Currently, I am building a private Shinto shrine on my property (I am blessed with a private Shinto shrine just 30 minutes from home that I visit regularly). Naturally, there are not many people here in Tennessee that can offer any advice regarding anything Shinto, so I am in hopes of connecting with people here that can help me with my many questions! Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
