Shinto is Japan's ancient original religion, and it is deeply rooted in the way of Japanese life. Shinto has no founder, no holy book, and not even the concept of religious conversion, but Shinto places value in harmony with nature and virtues such as "Magokoro (sincere heart)".
In Shinto, something devine is regarded as Kami (divine spirit), and it is believed that there is an unlimited number of Kami.
Kami can be found in mythology, in nature, and in human beings. From ancient times, Japanese have felt awe and gratitude towards such Kami and enshrined them to Shinto shrines.
