“Welcome to Japan-Omotenashi” will introduce Japan’s unique culture sequentially.

Shinto is the belief system of many Japanese people.  Belief in the gods and the respect for the teachings of Shinto is part of the foundation of the national and ethnic Japanese identity.

Japanese people are influenced by Shinto in various aspects such as manners, precepts and public morality.
