Description
To truly know Japan, one must be acquainted with Shinto ("the way of the gods"), the country's indigenous religion. This book considers how Shinto underlies the importance of the emperor at the apex of Japanese society; how Shinto's pervasive concern with purification inspires ubiquitous Japanese customs of cleanliness; and how the beliefs and rites of Shinto reflect the subordination of the individual to the group. Shinto is widely identified with a loosely organized collection of shrines dedicated to an almost infinite number of kami or divine beings—a central aspect of the Japanese religious consciousness. This succinct, accessible introduction to a major religion is compact and easily portable yet beautifully bound and printed, with color photos and reproductions throughout and heavy paper covers.
