Encycloopedia of Shinto

The original Shinto jiten is the most widely used general work of reference regarding Shinto in Japan today. The online Encyclopedia of Shinto is the English translation of the Shinto jiten with links to video images, illustrations, photographs and sound files. By introducing the results of modern Shinto research through this medium, contribution will be made to the further growth of international research on Shinto and Japanese culture.
