Thank you for visiting the website of Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America.


Located on a pristine 25 acre site near Seattle, WA (by car - by bus), Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America is the traditional Jinja Shinto Shrine and the direct North American branch of Tsubaki O Kami Yashiro in Mie Prefecture one of the oldest and most prestigious shrines in Japan with a history of over 2000 years.

Originating in Japan's prehistory, Shinto is the Natural Spirituality or the practice of the philosophy of proceeding in harmony with and gratitude to Divine Nature.

The Shinto Shrine is an enriched environment where we can feel deeply refreshed and renewed. Please feel welcome to make the Omairi (visit) to Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America for the Seishiki Sanpai (shrine visit). Also the staff can conduct the Oharae (purification ceremony) as well as many types of Shinto Ceremonies for individuals, families, groups or businesses. At Tsubaki America Shrine there is also the opportunity for Misogi ShuHo (purification in the Mountain Stream) and training in Aiki-do
