Shinto Reading List

I get asked this question a lot! So I put together a comprehensive list to keep in one post. 

From the order of most recommend at the top, I suggest…

  • The Wisdom of Ise Jingu, by the Sara Project (I saw this book, and read it at the waiting room of Geku within Ise. It was just recently published, and translated into English as well. There was no copy to purchase, but if it does become more readily availible, it is by far my favourite English book/resource.)
  • Japanese-English, Shinto from an International Perspective, by Yamaguchi Satoshi
  • Japanese-English, A visual guide to Shinto by Yamaguchi Satoshi
  • Introduction to Shinto/ The Way of the Kami by Rev. Yukiyasu Yamamoto
  • Kami no Michi, by Rev. Yukitaka Yamamoto
  • Shinto Shrines: A Guide to the Sacred Sites of Japan’s Ancient Religion, by Joseph Cali & John Dougill
  • The Essence of Shinto, by Motohisa Yamakage
  • Shinto : Meditations for Revering the Earth, by Stuart D. B. Picken
  • Shinto Norito, by Ann Llewellyn Evans
  • The Fox and the Jewel, by Karen A. Smyers (this is #1 to learn about Inari Okami worship)
  • A Year in the Life of a Shinto Shrine, by John K. Nelson
  • Shinto : A Celebration of Life, by Aidan Rankin

I see a book recommended from time to time, it is “Shinto: The Kami Way by Sokyo Ono”…I do not recommend this book, his views are very outdated and xenophobic, and do not reflect the current movement and welcoming of all cultures to practice Shinto.

You can find a lot of these books on Amazon for cheap, and I’d check ebay as well!
Some you can also check your local bookstore for, and there are ebook versions as well for Amazon

Any other Shintoists on tumblr, please add to the list!
