Sacred Texts – Shinto and other Japanese texts available online

Tsubaki Grand Shrine of North America – It’s in Washington State!


Essence of Shinto: Japan’s Spiritual Heart  by Motohisa Yamakage – This is written by a priest who wants the beauty of Shinto out in the Western world. Of the two books listed here, this is favorite.

Shinto the Kami Way by Sokyo Ono – A more academic take on the subject.

Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers by Leonard Koren – It’s not an explicit Shinto, but I find the ideas of wabi-sabi fit beautifully with Shinto ideas.
