August Spirits, Shelf of the
In Japan, it used to be customary for every house to have a
room set apart, called the spirit chamber, in which there was
a shelf or shrine with tablets bearing the names of the deceased
members of the family, with the sole addition of the word Mitama
(spirit). This is a species of ancestor worship and is known
as ‘‘home’’ worship.
