Title
Text A branch shrine. From the main shrine, the resident deity (saijin) may be entreated (kanjō) to impart (bunrei) the divine presence to another location as well, through the construction and dedication of a new small shrine (hokora) or branch shrine. Such is also called a bunsha, niimiya, or imamiya. Instances of these can be seen in efforts to provide those living far away from the main shrine with opportunities for worship and, in the Meiji era, to build branch shrines for settlers arriving in newly developed regions such as Hokkaido and bringing their native deities with them.
