Hi, Emma. What are you reading?
Oh, this? It’s a culture magazine.
I’m reading a guide on Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines in Japan.
How are they different?
Well, a Shinto shrine is a place of worship to the honored ‘kami,’ deities of Shinto.
How about the temples?
A Buddhist temple, on the other hand, is dedicated to a Buddhist deity.
I see. What do Japanese people do when they visit?
They usually put a coin in an offering box and pray quietly.
They also purchase omamori, a protective charm.
Are tourists welcomed there?
Of course. Everyone can visit regardless of personal beliefs.
But we all should behave respectfully.
