Wikipedia definition
2. State Shintohas been called the state religion of the Empire of Japan, although it did not exist as a single institution and no "Shintō" was ever declared a state religion. The idea of "State Shinto" was never conceived of during the imperial era, but was first proposed in 1870 by the postwar religious scholar Shigeyoshi Murakami to classify those ideals, rituals and institutions that were created by the government to promote the divinity of the emperor and the uniqueness of Japan.
