A religion native to Japan, characterized by veneration of nature spirits and ancestors and by a lack of formal dogma. Shinto is actually from the Chinese word for Japanese religion, shen-dao, the Way of the Higher Gods. The Japanese term for traditional religion is kami-no-michi, the Way of the Kami. Kami are spirits, gods, sacred powers and so on. It is very animistic. All things derive from the power of the kami. Once, Japan was only inhabited by kami. As all things derive from the kami, so do human beings derive from the kami and may become kami upon death. This belief forms the traditional history of the origins of Japan and its people. In the beginning the kami were generated on the Plain of High Heaven. The most important were Izanagi and Izanami. Their creative power brought about the land of Japan and the people. Izanagi and Izanami descended to the Floating Bridge of Heaven and stirred the salt water to create an island to which they descended to give birth to the kami of the world. The universe is interpreted in terms of the power of the kami. The myths discuss 800 myriads of kami on the Plain of High Heaven, much less the kami of Earth, the Central Land of Reed Plains. The myths set the pattern for Japanese concerns for purity, the veneration of the sun kami, the festivals and rituals, and the traditions that provide the distinctive Japanese identity.more...

Okay, to the two who wrote this: the truth is the Chinese and Japanese people in general get along just fine. They are both emerging world-superpowers and their economic ties are bringing them closer together. Also, with the booming economy, more people are traveling. I’ve never heard of any Japanese who went to China or any Chinese who went to Japan say anything negative about the people’s attitude towards them there. But, if you must talk about their political ties in the past and present, please don’t be so ignorant as to write the things below:more...
"'ok if japan has apologized numerous times, why cant they just issue an official apology then? yes, certain ppl have "apologized" for japans actions, but has the government?? has the japanese government even admitted to doing the things they did in WWII?'
The apologies I am talking about are from the Japanese government. There is on Wikipedia I believe an entire list of these apologies, it's rather long my friend. There is also been the offers of financial compensation that were TURNED DOWN BY THE CCP. Japan has issued numerous official government apologies.’”
The problem here is that Japan's action does not match her words. Yes they apologized to the China and Korea for brutal mass murders and rape, but then they turned around to worship their war-crime generals. Key word here is WORSHIP. It is hard for people not to feel that the official apologies are just superficial words. I’ll take some excerpts from a re...

Directions: To properly execute a successful delivery of the death blow of the "Shockwave", one must possess the art of timing and rhythm.
1st. In bed and under the covers, let a dirty fart just rip (eating a Polish diet will make a deadly fart-smell concoction).
2nd. Slowly raise your feet to a level of 1-2 feet. This will fill the chamber (the covers of biological death warfare) with air.
3rd. drop your feet and as your feet are approximately 1/2 way down, raise the the edge of the covers nearest you faces and unleash the payload!!!! The Flash gust of toxic wind will blow right into your victim's face!!! (for best results, wait for he mouth to be wide open- She will taste it!!!!
4th. Laugh at your victim who should be angry, gagging, (and if you took my advice on the proper diet) begging for mercy or even death.
Have fun! very effective!!
