Shrine in Nioh is a special location where players can level up their Stats to increase William's abilities. Shrines can also connect the player to "Visitors from faraway places" (i.e. summons). There are also spirits called Kodama which you can discover and guide back to a Shrine by holding circle. At the shrine they will then confer passive bonuses such as experience and gold gain, which you can customize.

They are holy places where the gods gather. Properly paying respects there can greatly ease a player's burdens.
