Shinto practices were first recorded and codified in the written historical records of the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki in the 7th and 8th century. Still, these earliest Japanese writings do not refer to a unified "Shinto religion", but rather to disorganized folklore, history, and mythology. Shinto today is a term that applies to public shrines suited to various purposes such as war memorials, harvest festivals, romance, and historical monuments, as well as various sectarian organizations. Practitioners express their diverse beliefs through a standard language and practice, adopting a similar style in dress and ritual, dating from around the time of the

Brief history of Shinto:
Shinto is an ancient Japanese religion. Starting about 500 BCE (or earlier) it was originally "an amorphous mix of nature worship, fertility cults, divination techniques, hero worship, and shamanism." Its name was derived from the Chinese words " shin tao " ( "The Way of the Kami" ) in the 8th Century CE . At that time: The Yamato dynasty consolidated its rule over most of Japan.

Miscellaneous Shinto (literally, the way of the gods) is the native Japanese religion. It originated in prehistoric times and has long played an important role in Japanese society. The major shrines around the country have often been power bases, closely tied with Imperial and shogunal powers. Unlike the world's major religions, Shinto has no fixed dogma, moral precepts, or sacred scriptures. Perhaps for this reason, most Japanese quite easily incorporate Shinto into their way of life alongside Buddhism and even elements of Christianity without feeling a strong attachment to or having a passionate belief in any of them. Shinto is practiced at

A shrine is usually characterized by the presence of a honden note 1 or sanctuary, where the kami is enshrined. The honden may however be completely absent, as for example when the shrine stands on a sacred mountain to which it is dedicated, and which is worshiped directly. The honden may be missing also when there are nearby altar-like structures called himorogi or objects believed capable of attracting spirits called yorishiro that can serve as a more direct bond to a kami There may be a haiden hall of worship and other structures as well (see below).

    thought and philosophy of the Tokugawa period in Japan (1600-1868), nothing says "Japan" like the Shinto religion. The Tokugawa "Enlightenment" inspired a group of thinkers who studied what they called kokugaku , which can be roughly translated "nativism," "Japanese Studies," or "Native Studies." Kokugaku was no dry-as-dust academic discipline as the term "Japanese Studies" seems to imply; it was a concerted philosophical, literary and academic effort to recover the essential "Japanese character" as it existed before the early influences of foreigners, especially the Chinese, "corrupted" Japanese culture. Recovering the essential Japanese character meant in the end distinguishing what was Japanese from what is not and purging from the Japanese culture various foreign influences including Confucianism (Chinese), Taoism (Chinese), Buddhism (Indian and Chinese), and Christianity (Western European). The kokugakushu ("nativists") focussed most of their efforts on recovering the Shinto religion, the native Japanese religion, from fragmentary texts and isolated and unrelated popular religious practices.

    January 11th, 2008 Shinto is an animistic religion native to Japan.テつ In Shinto there are eight million kami, however the number eight and million was also used to denote many, so lets just say their are lots of them. Every rock, animal, spring, emotion, quality and even person has a kami associated with it. The spirits of the dead are kami. At some point it would be useful to define exactly what is a kami. There are number of possible answers to this, from the western perspective the easiest answer would be just to call them gods (in the Greek and Roman pantheistic tradition), but I think this mis-represents things. According to Shinto, when your father dies his spirit becomes a kami. The kami seem to run gamut from ghosts and other spirits to what we would clearly call gods in other traditions. Purification plays a large part in Shintoism. Water, exorcism, and abstention are all methods of purification.

    Pensamiento Oriental
    Según algunos estudiosos se trataría de una "religión civil" que encara un acercamiento a la Realidad Suprema, manifestada en la naturaleza, en una forma nacional y social, dejando a cada individuo la libertad de elegir la religión que quiere o también de no tener ninguna. La falta de un poder central, de principios doctrinales absolutos y de un estricto código moral, permitió la adaptación a las sucesivas corrientes culturales procedentes de Corea y China. Así, la cosmovisión indígena primitiva, enriquecida por los aportes del desarrollo histórico nacional, llegó hasta la actualidad moldeando y preservando las características esenciales del alma japonesa. Por eso Ono Sokyo pudo escribir: "El Shinto es más que una fe religiosa. Es la amalgama de las ideas, actitudes y comportamientos que, a través de más de 2.000 años, se han construido como una parte integrante del estilo de vida del pueblo japonés". Otros lo definieron como "el conjunto de los factores emotivos e inconscientes de la raza japonesa", o "la toma de conciencia de la mentalidad mítica japonesa". Estas definiciones confieren al Shinto una connotación "étnica" y "secular" con consecuencias prácticas muy importantes.

    What is Shinto?
    Shinto Basics Numbers: 4 million
    Founder: Shinto claims no founder.
    Main Tenets:
    Main Sacred Text: Shinto has no comprehensive canon of scripture. No written Shinto documents survive from before the seventh century. But a written Shinto mythology appears in the early sections of the eighth-century books "Kojiki" ("Records of Ancient Matters," completed in 712 C.E.) and "Nihon Shoki" ("Chronicles of Japan," completed in 720 C.E.), which record the role of the kami in creating Japan and the Japanese imperial lineage. The divine pair Izanagi and Izanami brought forth Amaterasu, the sun goddess and ancestress of the Japanese emperor (hence the sun on the Japanese flag).
    Principal Center: Shinto shrines can be found in groves of trees all over Japan. All the shrines have sacred gates (torii) and often contain water for symbolic purification of hands and mouth; larger shrines have main halls, buildings for offerings, and oratories. Inside the main hall resides the goshintai (god-body), which is sometimes represented by a mirror, but more often nothing at all. The classic Shinto shrine is the world-renowned Ise Shrine, the primary cult site for Amaterasu, arguably the most important kami.
