    15 Jinja Honchō means “Shrine HQ” and to the Japanese ear has governmental connotations. However, the official English translation of Jinja Honchō is invariably given as “Association of Shintō Shrines”. This is an example of the way in which official Shintō appears differently inside and outside Japan.
