Participation and Motivations in Shinto Rites and Rituals in Modern Japan
Increased participation in Shinto rites and rituals indicate the strengthening of Shinto as a religion while religious apathy and motivations behind the participation may be interpreted the other way around. By looking at historical facts, statistics, interviews, surveys and case studies regarding the establishment of modern day Shinto, Shinto funerals, amulet distribution, Shinto festivals and shrine visits, the strength of Shinto in modern Japan will be evaluated. This will show how Shinto rites and rituals grow strong as recreational activities rather than religious practices.
