Information on Shinto

The indigenous religiosity of Japan has come to be known as Shinto, and has always been closely tied to the political life of the Japanese as well as to other religious traditions. Shinto shrines abound in Japan, and most Japanese take part in one or another Shinto ceremony over the course of a year. Although Shinto is not a missionary religion, Shinto now has an international presence as well. The sites listed below give some background as well as links to specific shrines.
