At Shinto Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Lounge, our guests often ask us about the meaning of the word Shinto and why we model our entire company around this culture.
The word Shinto means “the way of the gods” and has deep roots in prehistoric Japanese agricultural and religious practices. These “gods” can be represented by animals, places, natural objects, and even human beings. Shinto rituals and celebrations honor harmony between humans and nature.
The Japanese once believed that their gods resided in nature, and Shinto shrines were places near beautiful and unusual parts of the environment, including waterfalls and mountaintops. While an important element of Shinto is to live in peace and prosperity, other key values are to be helpful, pure of heart, and grateful without any thought of reward
At Shinto Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Lounge, we’re proud to offer only the best in quality, service, and atmosphere — providing the ultimate Shinto dining experience. Visit us today for a firsthand experience in “the way of the gods.”
