 Shinto is a religion prevailing in Japan.

In this page, shinto shrine tagging standard will be described based on some discussions in talk-ja(ja). After general agreement is achieved in Japanese community, English page will be made.

Followed amenity=school and landuse=religious tagging scheme. You can use landuse=religious when several amenity=place_of_worship are in same area.

It's better to draw Honden and Haiden separately.
