- Hi Ellery! My name is Jena and I am also new
here. I have been aware of Shinto for quite some time
but it has seemed a bit beyond me since I don't speak
Japanese very well and written information has been rather
scarce. I have found a few rescources online; also there
is a book called "Shinto: The Kami Way" that gives a
good overview on the religion as an entity while not
discussing the Kami and their roles in it at all. Hm. It's
worth checking out. I got a video called "World
Religions: Shinto" that I plan to watch tonight, and I'll
let you know how it was.<br><br>I'm sorry if this is
sort of a strange introduction but I look foreward to
meeting and discussing with everyone here. I am very glad
to have found this group!<br><br>---Jena!!!
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.
