Japanese stamp books are a fun way to visit Japanese historic sites and provide lasting memories of your adventures. Mine comes from Zenko-ji temple in Nagano prefecture. This temple is very famous around Nagano and was even visited by the Dalai Lama. Since 2012, I have accumulated several stamps of temple and shrines I have visited. Each stamp indicates the date of visit and the kanji’s of the shrine. If you get yourself a stamp book, I strongly suggest you always keep it with you, you never know when you’ll stumble on a shrine in Japan! It is also perhaps a good idea to write the place’s name if you do not have Japanese among your friends to remind you later, unless you read Kanji of course!
