Where can I get a shrine stamping book?

I saw it in a commercial that popped up on my youtube. Two women basically were going shrine hopping and collecting signatures in their books. They were sorta fold out books, not bound. While going hiking yesterday, we went to a shrine and found a stamp. Are these books a thing that can be bought? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Probably you mean the temple and shrine seal books → 朱印帳” (shuinchou) Zooming Japan has an interesting article about this topic. You can take a look here: http://zoomingjapan.com/items/japanese-seal-book/

    Usually major temples sell them. :) I guess you could also check online. But I haven't been able to find a place that sells them online. Maybe because they are meant to be "religious" since they were used to go on enlightenment pilgrimages.

    Depending on the location, but if an area is famous for their bunch of shrines, the shrines participating in the rally will likely have them so you can technique start the rally race at any shrine in no particular order. The tourist center of the area (probably in the train station) would likely carry it too.

    Sometimes the train lines organise these type of "stamp rallies". Tobu Tojo line had one recently for the Kawagoe area. And also in Kawagoe on the 1st of the month participating temples give out stamp rally pamphlets for those participating in the Seven Lucky God pilgrimage. If you are in tourist area, you can also ask at the tourist information bureau if they have any shrine and temple stamp rally brochures. We have picked them up in all of the above, plus libraries, cafes, town halls and tourist attractions. I've grown quite fond of a good old stamp rally!!

    You can buy them at the stationery section of large department stores such as Loft too, just ask for a shuinchou and they will point you in the right direction.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
