There are only a handful of Shinto shrines in the United States, most of them in Hawaii. But there is one in Granite Falls, Washington, called the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America. Massive in comparison to Hawaii’s Shinto shrines, the Tsubaki Grand Shrine sits on 25 acres of land and offers programs, events and activities throughout the year. Judging from photos on the shrine’s website, many of the participants at activities appear to be non-Asian, including the shrine’s senior priest, Rev. Barrish. Here’s a useful and interesting Q and A about Shinto from the Tsubaki Grand Shrine’s website: http://www.tsubakishrine.org/qanda/index.html.
