Introduction: Japanese Religion and Spirituality

I decided to give people a chance to ask me questions about Japan that would enable me to further my research on Japanese culture and society in my free time. One of the questions I received was from Patti who asked “How is religion/spiritual practice integrated into the life of the “average” citizen?”

While I could have easily written a full-scale research paper on this subject, and I found I actually enjoyed bringing information up on the subject (possibly something for a future research paper), my time is unfortunately limited, as I am in the middle of an independent study where I have to hold myself accountable for the material. Patti, I hope this gives you a bit of an insight into beliefs, religion, spirituality and how it frames the Japanese people in their day to day life.
