Shinto creation stories tell of two creator deities, who descended from heaven and together produced the various islands of Japan, with the mountains, rivers, and surrounding seas.

She is enshrined at the holiest of places, the Ise Shrine in Mie prefecture. At the shrine, the special prayer given for the founding Goddess of Japan is called “taima”, which literally means “cannabis,” and these ceremonies are still conducted five times a year.

    Too bad Marijuana is extremely illegal in Japan.

    From Wikipedia:
    Penalties for possession or use of marijuana in Japan are severe, and convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and fines.[30] Possession of any amount, as little as 0.1 g, is punishable by jail sentence for up to 5 years and/or a fine of up to 30,000,000 yen (USD 344 790)[31] However, the defendant has to stay in police custody for at least a few weeks until a court decision is made.

    The image of a sexed up, westernized female with “asian” facial attributes and some sort of chinese dress on is unfortunate. Such symbology has little to do with shintoism. The reason for shintoism’s decline in Japan and the illegality of cannabis is westernization and post ww2 domination of the culture by anti cannabis , alcohol worshipping RCC. Still, appreciate the author’s good intent.
