Religion in Japan
Hosted by Charles Dunbar
Ever hear the word "Shinto," but not know what that entails? Or wonder how Buddhism came to Japan (Did you know it was practiced by the samurai?) Or ponder the influence of Taoism on Japanese culture. And then there was that Confucius guy, but wasn't he Chinese? This panel is here to answer those questions. Navigating the often complicated world of Japanese sacred traditions, we will explore the religions of Japan: how they are practiced, the history behind them, and how they have influenced modern media.
