Planning a trip to Japan? Don't miss the chance to partake in a tradition that's over 400 years old. Scattered across prefectures and cities, you'll find hidden shrines and temples offering Goshuin. As you watch monks slide their brushes across paper, you'll witness the beautiful adornment of red "temple stamps" with intricate Japanese characters. Each Goshuin is unique and will be safely kept in your Goshuinchō. When you return home, you'll have a one-of-a-kind souvenir and memories that will last a lifetime.
GoshuinGo helps you uncover these hidden shrines and temples scattered throughout Japan. We provide easy access to directions, opening hours, and entry fees for all the locations you're interested in visiting. But that's not all – the app also offers previews of collectible Goshuin, so you can choose which ones to add to your Goshuinchō before you even arrive. Make sure you don’t miss a must-see destination during your trip!
Our mission is to help preserve the rich history and traditions of Japan's temples and shrines. When you purchase a Goshuin (the monks request a small fee), you will be supporting this important cause and help ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy these beautiful places. Together, we can make a meaningful impact while experiencing the wonders that Japan has to offer. Will you join on this adventure?
