Shinto[1] is one of the four Eastern religions within Europa Universalis 3. The Shinto religion is restricted to Japan where it may be replaced by Catholicism depending on events such as Christian Converts and Kirishitan Conversion. With the combination of Unam Sanctum and Divine Supremacy playing as a unified Japan it is possible to declare a holy war on any other nation.
