The official religion in Japan is Shinto (Shintoism), a specifically Japanese religion, although in this country there is a lot of influence of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. The largest percentage of the Japanese population belongs to the ancient Shinto religion that is oriented towards respecting nature and ancestors. It influenced the way of life, homes and gardens arrangement of the Japanese people. It has also influenced the work ethics, transferring to enterprises through loyalty, harmony, peace and silence that are desirable as the production process unfolds. In Japan, more than any other country, everything is subordinate to man, so human resources are the most significant. Great investments in human capital through education, job training and the entire philosophy of work have contributed to making Japan one of the most economically developed countries in the world and the most technologically advanced countries in the world. At the same time as it followed the path of industrial development, it encouraged the preservation of the continuity of one's own tradition, culture and belief, and thus became one of the most influential countries.
