The word "Kannushi" (Shinto priest) is thought to mean the whole of the Shinto priesthood, but it only refers to priests who conduct rituals and should be distinguished from the "guji" ( chief priest ) who is responsible for the administration of the Shinto Shrine. A kannushi wears purified white, and vestments are designated according to rank.
