Are there any similarities between Hinduism and Shinto?

’Yes’ is the answer given by somebody, somewhere but I don't agree. In fact I would never compare any two religions. One may find a few aspects that look alike but the founder knows there is nothing. Every religion is based on certain divine principles but all religion defends humanity to the core.

I know that in Hinduism, for which no one man is attributed as its founder existed more than 5000 years ago as proved by the archaeological discoveries in Harappa and Mohenjadaro.

The different Gods in the Hinduism must have come much later but there are no historical evidences for that too.

For information, Shinto is the religion of Japan. Shinto is commonly translated as "The Way of the Gods".
