Japanese mythology question (why yes, I am writing fanfic, how did you guess?)

I've been looking for information on angels in (Japanese) Buddhist and Shinto mythology, so far coming up with very little. I'm fairly sure they exist, but-- what's their function? What do they do? Who's in charge of them? Are there different kinds, and if so, what are they? What are their attributes and charactaristics?

I realize these questions are sort of vague, so if you can point me at books or websites, I'll be just as happy. Thanks!
