This is going to be the first post on shinto and general culture references in Naruto manga. That is if I will find time to make another posts on the subject, because it takes some time to gather up the information. I am not going to pretend that I am an expert in the matter. But at the same time I am not going beyond pointing out some interesting facts, i.e. I am not going to make assumptions and draw conclusions. So that should be ok, I will show you stuff, you will think for yourself.
I assume that all my readers know that Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, Susanoo and Izanagi are Shinto gods, so I won’t mention this. I will try to find less obvious things.
In this post I am going to take some scenes from the resent chapters and see what you will think of it. Here we start.
If you want to read more about Fujin, check out Wikipedia article, here – Fujin. He is the son of Izanami, another Shinto god.
If you what to learn more about kabuki theater, here is the Wikipedia article: Kabuki.
If you want to learn more about what you have seen in the picture above, I suggest you to read about Japanese drama Noh.
I hope it was interesting. It certainly was interesting to me to research that. Hope I will make more such posts. See you (^_^)/
