About Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America and Shinto
Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America is the traditional Jinja Shinto Shrine located on a pristine 25 acre site near Granite Falls, Washington. Less than 1 hour from Seattle or Eastside. Tsubaki America Shrine is the branch of Ise-no-kuni Ichi-no-Miya, Sarutahiko Daihonguu, Tsubaki O Kami Yashiro (Tsubaki Grand Shrine) one of the oldest and most prestigious shrines in Japan with a history of over 2000 years.

Shinto is the way of living in harmony with Great Nature. Shinto is optimistic, pure, simple, and bright and an expression of the flow of life. Our human lives, received from Great Nature and our ancestors are essentially good obscuring energies exist but through the purifying (harae), straightening (naobi), and invigorating (kiyome) action of Shinto we can prevent misfortune or move towards solution if misfortune has already occurred.

The Shinto Shrine is an enhanced natural environment. As Shinto is outwardly unchanged for millennia, visiting the Shinto Shrine can help reconnect us to our primal intuitive roots. Please 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.

Gosaijin (main Kami) of Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America is Sarutahiko-no-O-Kami, primal earthly kami of guidance, positiveness and protection. Also enshrined is Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto, kami of arts and entertainment, harmony, meditation and joy. As they are a wedded couple. Tsubaki Shrine is the place to pray for a happy home, family prosperity and safety.
