The new style of Kamidana (household Shinto altar) fitted the era.
Offer every day thanks and pray, then cherish those around you.

In Japan, there was a Shinto altar in the house so that people could live peacefully and happily with blessings.
They were enshrined as guardians of places essential to daily life and played a role in valuing the connection between people.
Nowadays, a smartphone is a key to our life and people’s relationship is
mostly online more and more.
Why don’t you enshrine Kamidana to mobile phones?


This application is based on the system of attracting and fulfilling one's desires through self-coaching, which is one of the customs of worshiping the altar of the gods.

You can do as follows with the Kamidana app.

The Perfect Positive Habit Help!

This app is great for anyone that loves anime, Japanese culture, or is interested in Shinto. It's a nice way to easily journal the positives of each day and release the negative. It's a great way to explore Shinto without fear of making mistakes or having to buy into the sacred items in real life before you know if it's right for you. My only critique is that the translated phrases need a little polishing! I'd also love to see more information about the different Kamidana types in the app. Any extra guidance on Shinto practice in general would be greatly appreciated!

Simplistic with intrusive and inappropriate Ads

A few basic and yet somehow confusing controls and settings. Random full screen pop up ads after exchanging offerings or fortunes/“whitty remarks” <- (can we get a better phrase like “quote of the day”?). I thought Shinto was about cleansing the spirit and honoring the Kami, not a shameless money grab. No instructions or education piece of the app to talk about Shintoism. No connection with specific orgs or shrine types for issuing a type of digital ofuda or any type of real connection to the Kami.

The straw the broke the camel’s back for me was a banner ad for a christian association on my app. I can’t even pay to have the app completely ad free so I won’t be proselytized to by other religions! This is totally inappropriate and unacceptable. I’ve been using this app every day for years in spite of its simple interface and issues, but allowing adverts for other religions has killed this for me.

Cute Kamidana app.

Need a little shrine or just want to make a wish? This app helps me think of small house shrines when I don’t have space or money to set one up. Plus, the “back of office” mascot is cute!
