Sometimes nature strikes us with disaster. Japan in particular is a country that is never far removed from natural disasters like typhoons, earthquakes, and volcanic activity. Towards these overwhelming forces of nature the Japanese people are fearful, respectful, and worshipful of them as gods. The belief in the existence of numerous gods dwelling in everything such as mountains, rivers, and even water have spread throughout the land and developed in to the native Japanese belief of “Shinto.” Shinto shrines stand in many areas all throughout Japan. Even today, seasonal Shinto festivals are held to celebrate a good harvest, and to thank the gods responsible.
