Jisha
   'Temple-shrine'. Traditional religious centres which evolved out of the relationship between one or more shrines and Buddhist temples, usually implying the identification of each kami with a Buddha or bodhisattva (bosatsu) and the integration of beliefs and ritual practices. The constituent elements of the jisha were 'separated' in the shinbutsu bunri of 1868 prior to the emergence of late 19th century Shinto.
