Also called gokuusho ‹ŸŒäŠ or goryouya Œä—¿‰®; also nieden or niedono æѓa. The place where food for the gods is prepared at a Shinto shrine. Priests carry the food from the shinsenjo to the front of the closed doors of the main sanctuary *honden –{“a, which are opened only when an important ceremony or festival is held. Ceremonial customs vary from shrine to shrine. See *kashigidono †“a. Various structures are usually attached to the shinsenjo. One such building is a place for cooking called a *kamadodono â}“a. Another where the actual offering of any remaining food takes place is called the moridono ·“a. The shinsenjo has an entrance for general use and one from which the offering is made. The floors are either hard-packed earth or plank depending upon their function. One at Nikkou “úŒõ in Tochigi prefecture is 7 bays ~ 3 bays and had a hip and gable roof *irimoya-zukuri “ü•ê‰®‘¢, but is now roofed with copper.
