Shinto is conventionally described as "the ancient, indigenous religion of Japan and the Japanese people." My work shifts our focus from the past and the boundaries of Japan to contemporary, transnational Shinto communities. I study how social networks--online and off--are being created between Japan and other countries through digital media and how they construct a global Shinto which questions our fundamental assumptions about the religion.
