The questions of whether Shinto is a religion or not have been long debated and I will not get into the politics of Japanese religion systems. However Shinto is a big part of Japanese life and people practice Shinto rituals disregard of belief in religion. What I will talk about is the impact Shinto has on modern media and technology. You might not think it but Shinto and other "religions" still play a big part in modern culture. References to religion and religious narrative can be seen in a lot for todays Film, TV, Music and Books.
