Japanese mythology is an affluent culture that encapsulates the Shinto and Buddhist traditions.

Through this comprehensive guide, not only will you travel back to ancient worlds and legendary characters, but you'll also uncover various creatures that encircle this unique world filled with stories about love, and sometimes betrayals, that remind us of our human nature, and even some extraordinary endings that will give you some more hope. By the time you come back to reality, you will be deeply intrigued but, most importantly, fulfilled. So, are you ready to embark on this adventure?
