Re: Gifts Of Money From O'Sensei's Students

Uh oh here I go out on a limb, but visiting friends in Japan I brought a gift and they put it on a shelf near the ceiling. I think it's called a kamidana, or the Buddhist equivalent.....

It was kind of like a high up mini-altar, so I respected that, but as an American I wished they would just open it so I could see if they liked it.

I hope my attempt to add my little observation will prompt some people to give more elucidation on Japanese customs and about O-Sensei.....
