This shrine represents everything beautiful about the Japanese aesthetic. Simple, pure and inspiring. As uplifting as a cathedral, but tucked into a rock garden, surrounded by Japanese maples and a stream

Small and a bit underwhelming. But the rabbit is kinda cute. If you want merchandise, they have cute rabbit charms here.
