The number of Shinto shrines in Japan is estimated to be around 100,000.

Shrine

Is there a database describing them or at least a good fraction of them?

If possible with the following information:

  • Latitude/longitude
  • Date of establishment
  • Size
  • Deities
  • Special powers
  • Number of visitors per year
  • Maybe even reviews/stars given by visitors

The Association of Shinto Shrines I would expect to have a database of shrine locations - but they do not have it online. Perhaps you can contact them. Here is their link:

This is a dataset of ancient Shinto shrines (warning: it is in Japanese):

For each shrine, the available information is:

  • Name of the shrine
  • Commandery (Japanese territorial subdivision system used centuries ago)
