Re: Question on Shinto
- It is a question in the world of Shinto, but it
is not accepted by all. In fact there is a licenced
Shinto priest living in Granit Falls, Washington. He has
a beautiful shrine there named Kannagara Jinja.
It's a branch of Tsubaki O Kami Yashiro in Susuku,
Japan. Rev. Barrish is the Guji of Kannagara Jinja and
assistant senior priest at Tsubaki. His web page is
Kannagara.org if you want to see what his shrine looks like.
But yes, there are some who feel anyone who is not
Japanese cannot or should not understand the depth of
Shinto since it is so rooted in the culture.
Do not be so discontent. Though I am new to the group, I am
not new to the religion. If you're wanting general information about
Shinto you can go online to the national Shinto Foundation. It is
at: http://jinja.or.jp/english/ or you can try this site.

helps. If not let me know.
