  • Opening the shinsen?

    Hey,

    During grading a few days ago a sensei got up on a ladder and opened little doors on the shinsen to reveal a little piece of paper.

    Can anybody tell me what significance this has?
    what is that paper inside?
    why do we only open it during grading?

    I didn't even know that thing had doors... cool!

    Sounds like it is a kamidana, a sort of scale model shinto shrine.

    What you do with it depends on the shrine - I had one that was to be never opened and returned for burning at New Years, have one that is to be opened once a year and dusted.

    Inside the one that is dusted there is a paper wrapped board with writing / kamifuda - just the enshrined deities name on it.
