A tour of Japan will certainly include visits to the many Buddhist Temples and Shinto Shrines. Despite the crowds, you will still experience a quietness and serenity during your time at these holy sites. You might observe other visitors practicing traditional rituals - bowing as they walk through the torii gates, washing their hands at the water pavilion, and praying by ringing the bell, clapping, bowing and lighting incense.
