This section provides an overview of Shinto and Native Studies. Native Studies is a movement that emerged from a series of philosophical reflections and analyses based on four elements of ancient Japanese culture: kami worship; the valorization of the ancient Japanese language in the writing and appreciation of waka poetry; the early mytho-historical chronicles of the Japanese court; and the Japanese imperial lineage. This section begins with a discussion of the history of Shinto and Native Studies in Japan before presenting translations of a variety of texts by Japanese philosophers, including Kamo no Mabuchi, Motoori Norinaga, Fujitani Mitsue, Hirata Atsutane, Ōkuni Takamasa, Orikuchi Shinobu, and Ueda Kenji.

Keywords:   kami, Shinto, Native Studies, waka, Japanese philosophers, Kamo no Mabuchi, Motoori Norinaga, Fujitani Mitsue, Hirata Atsutane, Ōkuni Takamasa
