You don't always have good communication with the Kami simply by learning the holy scripture Reikai Monogatari.

Prayer is a means by which we talk to the Divine.

We revere and worship the Great Deity Kamususanowo no Okami as the Creator.

Having faith in the Kami is living together with Him.
"Living together?" you might ask.
That's right. And it begins by offering prayers.

The Kami will hear your prayers when you pray to Him.
He will talk to your heart in a tiny little voice and lead you to happiness.

The relationship between the Kami and man is like that between parent and child. It is about love and affection, and words often fail to express its subtleties and complexities.

We begin and end the day with our prayers to the Creator in the morning and evening, giving thanks for all He has done for us.

The Kami will whisper a sweet little message into your heart!
