nice shrine source for small shrines
« on: July 26, 2019, 05:59:37 pm »
Greetings and Peace,

I have been keeping my eye out for an affordable, nicely made all-wood shrine since it's time for that in my practice. I wanted something well-designed, with two doors and large enough to fit my 12" x 3" x 4" statue, but not overly decorated with unrelated imagery, for under $100.

I found it, and am so pleased with it I thought I'd share here!

Nakayama Butsudans makes shrines in a variety of sizes and price points, and has a few plain ones that are just beautiful.

I brought this one home today:
https://www.nakayamabutsudans.com/collections/under-1-000-butsudans/products/ab19-ebony-butsudan

It's just the right size to comfortably fit one or two standing icons/statues and has a small drawer for storing items to boot! The ebony wood is luscious, with subtle striping in the grain. It does have gold foil on the back wall, but that could easily be covered over if desired. For my space and needs, it's perfect.

This page lists all their other shrines under $1000, in many different woods and designs. Thankfully they give interior dimensions as well as exterior, so you can see if a given interior space will be large enough for your needs.

I don't know how much more shipping would add. They are located where I live in Portland, Oregon, so I just went into the store and picked it up.

My state shrine has one of the butsudans from Nakayama, so I guess you could say they re Hethert-Mut approved. :D
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?

My state shrine also uses one of these butsudans, though mine doesn't have the drawer at the bottom. It fits both my statues comfortably side-by-side, and it's very nice to look at. <3

Gosh! I wonder if they ship to the UK :P Even with international shipping they're probably cheaper than some of the options I've been thinking of!

Tai'awepwawet-

Maybe!  :)

I'll add that the person who helped me was very happy to assist, was very welcoming and courteous.

Full disclosure: No, I don't work there or have any family or friend connection with the business. I just had a very positive experience there.

Happy that the shrines from there are already in use in state observances, and that others are finding this info useful <3

They look so good! Shipping to Australia would be horrendous though :o

You could try looking for a Japanese supplier. Shipping might not be as bad since it’s be coming from the same side of the world at least.
