Divine Favours

It’s some since I added anything to this blog, time to start again.

I have started listing the divine favours (御利益, gorieki) along with the enshrined Kami, in-ground shrines, and festivals. Praying for divine favours is one of the, if not the main, reason why many people visit shrines. Among the most common divine favours prayed for are success with school examinations and for happy marriages. So far I have identified 28 divine favours: for a typical example check out Shakujii Shrine.
