Goshuincho is an essential piece of Japanese culture for religious or entertainment purposes.

You have to collect them all!


You can get a goshuincho directly in the temples and sanctuaries you visit and in large bookstores.

The price then varies depending on the paper's thickness and the notebook's design. There is something for everyone! Bright, plain, or patterned, the cover of the goshuincho is personal.

Count between 1,000 and 2,000 yen (between $8.50-17/7.75-15€) on average to obtain your notebook.
