If someone ask japanese that what is your religion,
I think most people in japan may say that I'm an non-religious person.
Of course, there is buddhists, christians in japan.
But alomost all people think that they don't have religion by themselves.
Actually, it is not the fact that they don't have religion,i think it is so close to our life, so we can't notice how close it is between religion and us.
There are 80 thousand shrines in japan.We'll go there and pray in new year everyyear.
And we have a word calld 'yaoyorozu no kamigami(八百万の神々)',it means a hundreds of gods.From long time ago, our ancestor have said that all of things have soul of gods like mountain, sea, foods. My grandmather said that there is god for even a grain of rice before.
We have rich nature like mountain and sea, on the other hand we have faced a lot of disaster.
So we feel fear and respect for nature, and think about there is god is in it.When we eat food, we'll say 'itadakimasu（いただきます）'.It means we're thankful of eating foods that god is.
That is our life that spend with religion.
