Best Answer

Shinto, (pro: Shin-do)

There are no such thing as Shinto gods, (half true) the term "gods" is our western understanding of deities.

People that believe in Shinto believe in Kami which are spirits

Kami appear as spirits that govern nature and other aspects of the living world, every aspect of life has its own Kami, rivers, trees, earth.. etc etc

There are over 8000 Shinto deities, and are all in some way related to "Amaterasu" the goddess of the sun, either by a family bond, created by or simply one of many different forms of Amaterasu herself,in some cases its a mix of all three a concept that is hard for alot of westeners to come to grips with.
