Question Kamidana

Hi all,

My partner and i have just begun Aikido, but between us we do a couple of Japanese martial arts. Anyway because of this we are considering creating a private dojo for us in our shed. We would like to have a Kamidana, but are unsure on which direction it is meant to be placed.

Can anyone help us find out where and why?

Jaa Mata,
Drew

Re: Kamidana

Tamura Sensei's book on the etiquette of Aikido may also be of some use.

Re: Kamidana

Hello,
My husband and I have a kamidana in our home. It is proper to place it facing south or east. In addition from my understanding it should be placed in a high place. There are a lot of good books and web sites that can tell you about the subject in more detail if you want to know more. Just use any of the internet search engines. -Mindy-
