Summary
"The long history of Shinto is deeply bound to Japanese spirituality and mythology, and indeed the religion is regarded as Japan's very spiritual roots. In The Essence of Shinto: Japan's Spiritual Heart, revered Shinto master Motohisa Yamakage explains the core values of Japan's unique religion, paying particular attention to its spiritual aspects, as well as exploring the very profound roots of the original Shinto of ancient times."--BOOK JACKET
