Sakura Torii|Shinto Gate|

kami-no-michi, there is no belief quite like Shinto, it has very few barriers and is respects nature more than any other belief.

The word Shinto is the “way of the gods” and is about spirits. Since Japanese language does not distinguish between singular and plural, kami refers to the sacred essence that manifests in multiple forms: rocks, trees, rivers, animals, places, and even people can be said to possess the nature of kami. Kami and people are not separate; they exist within the same world and share its interrelated complexity.
