The Sonxintò (尊神党), literally "Revere the Gods Party", is a minor political party in Japan, holding eleven seats in the House of Representatives.

The party was established as a reaction to increasing secularization. They are a loose coalition of religious groups, advocating state support for Xintò shrines, as well as some non-Xintò houses of worship.

The party tends to take a traditionalist view on most civil rights and moral issues. However, they do oppose racial discrimination, and support a social safety net for the disadvantaged.

On foreign policy, the Sonxintò is opposed to the use of military power to solve international disputes. They advocate the use of diplomacy and economic pressure. They believe the government should support foreign states with a good record of religious tolerance, and put pressure on oppressive regimes to change their ways.
