Sacred high city, sacred low city : a tale of religious sites in two Tokyo neighborhoods

Author: Steven Heine
Publisher: Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, ©2012.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The author argues that lived religion in Japan functions as an integral part of daily life; any apparent lack of interest masks a fundamental commitment to participating regularly in diverse, though diffused, religious practices. The book uses case studies of religious sites at two representative but contrasting Tokyo neighborhoods as a basis for reflecting on this apparently contradictory quality.
