Hello, my name is Ayumu, and I practice the Shinto religion. I live in Yasukini, Japan, where a few other people practice my religion. We believe that everything in the world is equal in its creation. Shinto has been around since 500 BC. A few sacred texts we use Kojiki and the Nihon-gi. We believe that there is an invisible world amongst the visible world, but is not a separate dimension. We also belive in Kami, spirits of nature and being. Someday I want to visit Itsukushima. During our festivals, we have performances, feasts, and celebrate particular Kami.
