While studying Shinto, the foundation of Japanese traditions and culture, students proceed to a comparative study of religions other than Shinto, thereby examining the essence of Shinto objectively. At the same time, the faculty develops human resources with an education that adapts to the times and can become a bridge to hand down Shinto and Japanese culture both at home and abroad. Although this department is small in scale, its enriched learning environment can accept a variety of students interested in Shinto, religion and culture.
