Shinto is Japan’s indigenous religion, blending formal, elaborate ceremonial practices from the imperial tradition with local, community-based beliefs.

Followers of Shintoism worship their ancestors and regard them as the guardians of the family. They also pay their respects to the numerous kami – spirits that inhabit the natural world; there is no overarching doctrine or dogma in Shintoism, instead it focuses on the relationship between plants, animals, people, the elements and the yearly cycles of growth, death and rebirth.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2019/04/japans-holiest-shrine-is-pulled-down-and-rebuilt-every-20-years-on-purpose?utm_source=Facebook%20Videos&utm_medium=Facebook%20Videos&utm_campaign=Facebook%20Video%20Blogs&fbclid=IwAR2T8xFoeWgsOafKsvGvWGfvrEi0UOdHr_A78GtDrIOR89rxxhMpZRm7fGU

Japan is known for having disciplined and workaholic people; also in following certain traditions. The rebuilding of Japan's holiest shrine is to keep ancient skills and culture alive and to keep the original design of the shrine against the erosion of time.

Isn't amazing how they rebuild their holiest shrine every 20 years?

How are we saving our culture? Well, we are not even serious about preserving Taj Mahal. Forget everything else.

That is such a wise preservation method to protect their skills and culture against the erosion of time. So clever. I just LOVE that philosophy and way of thinking. So fascinating. No wonder I am drawn to Japan and love going there because they purposefully keep their culture in tact.

A wonderful means for preserving the heritage and culture. A lot to learn.

Given that there are hundreds of wood, thatch, and bamboo shrines and castles across Japan that were lost to fire, warfare, bombing and the ravages of time -- it does strike me that these very same skills could be better put to use rebuilding and restoring other sites instead.

Actually what was lost to the war has largely been reconstructed by these same crafts people.

Right, seek your own divinity, not that of others.
