Kyushu Travel Guide

Japanese religion (日本の宗教)

Why is Japanese religious orientation eclectic?
どうして日本人は複数の宗教を同時に信仰するのか?
Japanese indigenous religion, Shinto, has no founder or written doctrine 
and places a great
emphasis on ancestor and nature worship.
 
Japanese with no strong religious beliefs as traditional customs handed 
down from our ancestors,
This has developed great tolerance for other 
religions.
The other Japanese major religion, Buddhism, has founder, but he was a 
human, not the absolute, almighty god as that of Christianity or Islam.
This has also contributed to Japanese tolerance toward other religions. 
Those are the reasons why Japanese religious orientation is eclectic.
