“THE SHINTO` WAY” Shinto (the way of the gods) is the indigenous faith of the Japanese people, and it is as old as the Japanese people. Until the end of World War II, it was closely aligned with State Shinto. The Emperor of Japan was worshipped as a living God. Shinto does not have a founder nor does it have sacred scriptures like the sutras or the bible. Many texts are valued in the Shinto religion. Most date from the 8th century EC. Propaganda and preaching is not common either, because Shinto
