Until recently, this blog lacked something important: an easy-to-find short introduction to Shinto, so that people who came to the site while looking for basic information could find it quickly. I have now fixed that, adding a new page answering the question “What is Shinto?”. (It’s also linked from the main menu on every page.) There is also a five-year-old post, but that’s a bit harder to find. The new one should make things easy for people.
This post is very short, but if you add the new page to it, it’s about normal length.
