minzoku NEO-shintô is, "A universalist approach to an existential Japanese folk religion." To break it down, universalist means it's open to anyone who's sincerely interested, it's not just for people of Japanese ancestory. Existential means it's based on personal experience, not on scripture or dogma. Folk religion means it's a religion as practiced by the commons – the everyday people – and on a local basis; it's not a religion as taught in the seminaries, universities, or on a national or international basis.
Why is it NEO-shintô?
While it is primarily Japanese shintô, like most folk religions everywhere, it incorporates elements from other cultures and makes their expressions uniquely its own. Locally, this includes practices and forms derived from the various groups that make up Paganistan.
