Around the world, people of all ages pray—from childhood to old age. The Japanese notably have made a habit of praying for the last thousand years and more. At about 100,000 Shinto shrines all across Japan, they pray for mother nature, the blessing of newborn babies, children, weddings, and more, by conducting rituals, ceremonies and festivals. This film immerses the viewer into the unique ways of Japanese religion and culture, as practiced regularly in multitudes of locations all across Japan, through the age-old Japanese traditions of prayer.
