    This essay examines the Japanese religious environment, how Shinto is connected to other religions as well as exploring how modern-day Japan is influenced by Shinto one way or another. Firstly, the religious environment of Japan is explained as well as how Japan works as a syncretic religious system, as well as the difference between the terms of religion and belief. The origin of Shinto, as well as the different sects and the so-called eight million gods, will be looked at and explained thoroughly. In the end, Shinto as represented in Miyazaki's movies, modern-day movies, video games, and Marie Kondo will be inspected thoroughly and described in more detail. The question related to this essay is if Shinto should be classified as a belief or as a religion and also if Marie Kondo has been influencing people by bringing Shinto into their lives with her tidying methods, without people being fully aware of it.
