Shinto or Shentao or Shin Tao by any other name....well you get. If it wasn't apparent in my post to some, Shinto does reflect the Chinese influence and is a Japanese-ization of the Chinese word, in the Chinese English translation spelling is spelled "Shentao." But I see no reason for a more accurate spelling of Shin tao to reflect the Chinese influence on "kami no michi." Shinto (the spelling) is really for us guijing types anyways. And who says in a 100 years ther' ain't gonna be a different spellin'. That does happen.
