The kamidana (mini-shrine) for ordinary households became popular in the modern era. It coincides with the butsudan (mini Buddhist altar within the household). Usually, the ancestor deities are worshipped in the mini-shrine with an amulet from Ise Shrine, and a "sakaki" is placed with the omiki (sake for the Gods) and food offerings. At the December market, the mini-shrine vendor opened a shop, and people bought new ones to replace the old for New Year's.
