Butsudan is the Buddhist family altar in Japanese households. Historically, it was maintained in addition to the kamidana (“god-shelf”). The Buddhist altar generally contains memorial tablets for dead ancestors and, in accordance with sect affiliation, representations of various Buddhist divinities. Incense and candles are lit and flowers are offered by the devout at simple daily services, and, periodically, the family ancestors are memorialized before the butsudan.
