Summary:
Explore the rituals and ceremonies of Japan's Shinto, and discover its richly complex and subtle traditions. Students will examine the history and culture of Shinto through interviews, archival and on-location footage. Similar to other ancient traditions, Shinto is rooted in mythology and folk rituals that are passed through the generations, yet it is unique in having no congressional worship, founder or organizing doctrine. Viewers will learn about the social codes, daily life and other distinguishing features of Shinto or, "the way of the Kami" -- which, loosely translated, means "god" or "the sacred." See how over the centuries these traditions have served to unify Japan nationally and, at different times, mobilized the country politically. Narrated by Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley. Part of the Religions of the World Video Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Only available in the US.
