    schema:reviewBody ""Introducing Japanese Religion is the ideal resource for students who are beginning their studies of the religious traditions of Japan. It offers students a vivid picture of traditional and contemporary Japanese culture, and a rich understanding of the history and practice of religions in Japan." "Robert Ellwood explores the spiritual heritage of this fascinating country, from the Ise Shrine and Nara to the present day. He gives special attention to the traditions of Shinto, the different forms of Buddhism in Japan, including Shingon and Tendai, and Confucianism. He also explores Japanese New Religious Movements, including Aum Shinrikyo. Each religion is clearly described in terms of its history, practice, sociology and organization, and Ellwood emphasises how in practice Japanese religion interacts and intermingles. Finally, Ellwood discusses the influence of Japan on popular culture, including discussion of anime, and the transmission of Japanese spiritual, mythical and religious themes to the rest of the world." "Introducing Japanese Religion also includes illustrations, lively quotations from original sources, learning goals, summary boxes, questions for discussion, and suggestions for further reading, and a glossary, to aid study and revision."--BOOK JACKET." ;
