Shinto is one of the most followed religion convictions in Japan. It isn’t a religion per se. It’s spirituality based on the Japanese idea of ‘kami’, which means deity. The followers of Shintoism do not have any holy scriptures in the truest sense, but they do follow a Japanese classic like Kojiki and Nihongi. Shinto and Buddhism are very similar to each other. Both address the world-view questions and both aim to attain salvation. In fact, Shinto did not have a name until Buddhism was introduced in Japan.

On the 31st day of the birth of baby boys and 32nd day of the birth of baby girls, the parents and the grandparents of the child visit a Shinto shrine for the baby naming ceremony. The priest, in between all the prayers, announces the baby’s name. The parents then take carry the baby in the arms and bow to the altar.
