Religions of Japan in Practice

Religions of Japan in Practice by George J. Tanabe Jr.

An overview of many texts written in Japan. Heavily Buddhist and on the intellectual side. A variety, including a marriage ceremony, a pamphlet guide to the Yasukuni Shrine (featuring Poppo the Wise Pigeon to answer questions), history about the adoption of Buddhism and arguments about whether disasters were caused by worshipping the Buddha or failure to worship him, and hagiography.
