People who follow Shintoism believe that the spirits of Kami exist in all things. They try to respect the Kami as much as possible. They often build shrines and temples out in the forests to be used as places of worship and places to communicate with the Kami. They also worship their past emperors as gods. They give offerings to them and they build shrines. Also, people who follow Shintoism have a great respect for nature, like those who follow Animism.
