- Does anyone know what "Miko" actually means? I
know they are the shrine maidens, but what is the
origin of the word?<br><br>I cannot find the "mi" kanji
in my dictionaries, and my Japanese wife doesn't
seem to know either.<br><br>BTW, great club. It seems
to be doing fine without a club pic, but it could
look even more attractive with one. Maybe a tori, a
famous shrine or even a Miko-san. Just a thought, thanx.
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.
