Shinto is the indigenous religion of Japan, a life-affirming animism calling upon the blessings of the numinous forces of nature and of specific spirit deities. Shinto is largely associated with growth and prosperity; encouraging people to be sincere, cheerful, and pure, and to live in relationship with Kami (invisible spiritual forces).
