Abstract

Shinto, the native religious traditions of Japan, has been around for millennia, and has thus become part of the way of life of most Japanese people. However, young people have become increasingly less religious, and therefore the beliefs of Japanese youth pertaining to Shinto, is a valuable field of study. I produced a survey and administered it on Japanese high school students. Results to be discussed
