Sect Shinto. Official (i.e. registered with the Ministry of Education) Shinto organizations in Japan. They are assigned (chronologically) to one of three categories: jinja Shinto (Shrine Shinto, founded before the modern era), kyōha Shinto (Sect Shinto, autonomous organizations authorized between 1868 and 1945–i.e. Meiji to end of the Second World War), and shin kyōha Shinto (New Sect Shinto, post-1945). All of these very many movements have been discussed academically as new religions, but some are clearly newer than others. For lists, addresses, and some brief descriptions, see Japanese Religion, a survey issued by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
