Goshuin number 17 is from 神田明神 (Kanda Myojin), a shrine in Tokyo. This isn’t just any shrine either. Located near Akihabara, the anime and electronics hub of Tokyo, Kanda Myojin is often labeled as one of the geekiest shrines in Japan, as many of the people that go there are gamers and/or anime lovers.
Catering to their patrons, the shrine even has a charm for sale that will protect your electronic devices from harm! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find this charm… but I did (kinda sorta) get a stamp!
I have no idea why I got this when I asked for a stamp. My friends and I think maybe they didn’t have anyone there at the time that could do the calligraphy part? Oh well, guess I’ll have to go again!
