I am a person with no religious faith. The same goes for my brother and sister.
However, when our family, for example my grandfather and grandmother, died, we held the funeral in Shinto style (Shintoism). Then, we buried them in our Shinto-styled grave. During the funeral, We behaved in accordance with the customs of Shinto, even though We don't follow any religion.
People like us are very common these days in Japan.
