Most books claiming to be about the religious world of the Japanese
exclude 'secular' practices, which in Japanese reality are not
essentially different from 'religious' ones.
This new introduction to religion in Japan blends the best
methodological features from anthropology and religious and
historical studies to present a new way of studying Japanese
religion, highlighting the importance of the analysis of politics,
the state and economics as ritual institutions in contemporary
Students will get to see Japan in a new way through the linking
of topics previously kept separate, while covering all the
essential topics of study, including shrines and temples, rites of
passage, mortuary rites, weddings, festivals and pilgrimages, and
the status, rights and participation of women.
