Our first new book in the e-Book Catalog . What is minzoku NEO-shintô? The technical answer is, "A universalist approach to an existential Japanese folk religion." But what does that mean? To break it down, universalist means it's open to anyone who's sincerely interested, it's not just for people of Japanese ancestory.
