Shinto (Japanese traditional religion)

Shinto has been in Japanese soul from long ago. It is often said that Japanese don't have religion. I don't think so. Almost all Japanese have wonderful religion! There are a lot of religion in Japan, so many Japanese don't know what they believe in. In addition, World War Ⅱ made the situation complex. Then, a lot of Japanese were not able to believe their culture.

 I hope all Japanese understand and remember Shinto. 

I introduce a part of the link site story.

"Shinto is the indigenous faith of the Japanese. It is a way of life and a way of thinking that has been an integral part of Japanese culture since ancient times. It is the foundation for the yearly life-cycles, beginning with the New Year's Day visit Japanese pay to a Shinto shrine to wish for good luck"
