Institute of Japanese Traditions

We have created the Institute of traditions of Japan, to express in west the culture and traditions of Japan from the japanese viewpoint. We invite Japanese to participate in this project and help us to ameliorate the knowledge and inter-cultural understanding. Traditional culture and spirituality of Japan can assist and contribute to the établissemnt of a planet and human society in balance, in harmony and with respect for nature, thanks to the understanding of the spirit of Shinto. This spirit is the soul of Japan and its culture, but even some Japanese have forgotten value of this spirit and tradition. As long ago, the ancient Druidism knew the mystery of nature and respected it, the culture of Shinto has passed since prehistoric times in Japan, without being lost. he has something important to teach to human beings today.
