Each prayer is appears in its original form (japanese Kanji- Hiragana - Katana) with a translation in English and the original text written in roman alphabet.
The author Ann Llewellyn Evans made here a wonderful work for the one wishing to go dive into Shinto's spirituality.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I've started chanting a couple of the prayers every morning--it is really calming and starts my day out great.
This book is a "must" for anyone interested in Shinto.
The book begins by giving some basic understanding of the practice of Shinto. My favorite section is actually the Appendices, which give some descriptions of how to pray, the bowing and the clapping, etc. Also, describes how offerings are set out.
One thing I wish the book did was to describe or show diagrammatically, voice inflections in the prayers. Given that the sound of the words are so important in Shinto prayers, I would think that inflection would be important too, and I saw no discussion of this. If it's pronounced in a monotone manner, I'd like to at least know that. But, that's my personal feeling. Maybe I should see if I can find some audio clips to get a better idea of how Shinto prayers are chanted.
Back to the review, this is very much a non-academic book and the discussion of Shinto itself is pretty minimal. I don't feel I learned a tremendous amout about Shinto here. But then, as the title says, this is a book of prayers, which is exactly what I wanted and was expecting, and I'm glad I found it.
