Shrines in Japan are typically closed. Sure you can visit them, walk around the grounds, and make an offering at any hour of any day. However, the walls come down during a festival for performances and the like. Such is the case at the Suwa Jinja Matsuri in Shinjuku each August when visitors can get a rare glimpse at the simple and elegant stage behind the wooden walls.
