Understanding Shinto: Origins, Beliefs, Practices, Festival Sprits, Sacred Places by C. Scott Littleton

To know Japan, one must know Shinto-the country's indigenous religion. Using superb color images of rituals, ceremonies, and sacred architecture, as well as sacred texts, Understanding Shinto offers a fascinating glimpse into this unique culture. It explores the religion's symbolism, impact on daily life, and philosophical concepts-including the importance of the group over the individual.
