Temple and Shrine Stamp Books

Japanese accordion notebooks

Temple and shrine stamp books are used to collect red stamps that are received when visiting a temple or shrine. The pages are double-leaved so that the stamp ink doesn't bleed through. Thanks to the accordion folds of this book, you can spread out the pages to see all the stamps you've collected. Each temple and shrine has a unique stamp. When you receive a stamp it is overlaid with “sumi-gaki”, which are unique kanji-characters written in sumi-ink. These stamps and “sumi-gaki” are in beautiful harmony like a work of art. Be sure to pay your respects at the temple or shrine’s main hall before getting a stamp.
