After a long-term accumulation of mythology, religion, includes the history of science, art and even legal aspects, can be said that the myth is a social encyclopedia. Japan is a narrow strip of water neighbors, China Japan comparison study of the myths about finding has important implications on the differences between the two countries in politics, culture, ideology and religious background. This paper will be divided into four chapters to discuss these questions. First of all, based on the mythological role definition and classification, the myth, the author through the analysis of the mythological content summary, summarizes the myth sanctity, social, enlightenment, historical, recreational, religious, ethnic and symbiosis of these distinctive features, this article from the world opened up and the myth of human origin myth to explain these characteristics. Secondly, to record on the myth of the materials of development, through the comparison of the open myth content, clear differences between the two forms in the field of politics and national. Compilation of Japanese myths to permanent sanctity and maintain the emperor of imperial rule, but its emphasis on the sacred form of art, China will pay more attention to the means and methods of consolidating the rule. Therefore, Confucianism and Legalism was certainly China rulers chosen. On the other hand, nation and single faith Japan remained pure, the nation its opposite, in All flowers bloom together. contention of a hundred schools of thought, national integration background, unified difficulty Chinese national thought have relatively large. This is Chinese ancient dynasties changed frequently and a series of Japan is the eternal emperor system an important reason.

Thirdly, the comparative research on human origin myth, as Japan has no specific human origin myth, only the gods with human characteristics of creative activities, and China this period myth gradually from the myth of phase transition to the people of the stage, involved in human social life. Japanese mythology still maintained a sacred and Chinese myth has the property of color. Finally, in religion, Buddhism, China influence by foreign indigenous Taoism and Confucianism and Taoism in the spring and Autumn period thought, formed a special social ideology. Japan was also affected by a variety of religious culture, to form a symbiotic consciousness in a certain space as the basis. The author thinks that the coexistence of consciousness with China Confucianism of "and" thought has different approaches but equally satisfactory results, is the pursuit of a kind of symbiosis, coexistence, harmonious state of balance. At the same time, from the China myth can be seen in the Confucianism "benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, faith," the myth of the saints shaping the image is the comprehensive embodiment of Confucian thought.
