A Buddhist shrine found in many Japanese homes to honor the ancestors. When someone dies, the Buddhist priest gives a name to the deceased which is inscribed on an ihai (tablet) and placed on the butsudan. Offerings of food, flowers, and incense are made regularly upon the butsudan, and Buddhist scriptures are read in front of it. (from Wikipedia)
