Different Religions in Japan

by Ewa Nowogorski

Because Japan is very homogenous in terms of its people, its religion also tends to be homogenous. In America where people from all walks of life congregate, everyone has their own beliefs and religions. Many people are even constantly starting their own religions because they are not satisfied with what’s available.

In japan, Shintoism and Buddhism are the most common religions, and some customs that have these religious origins are weddings, funerals, and the New Year’s shrine visitations. Not very many young people worship gods, but older people do bring food offerings to shrines regularly to particular gods that they worship.

Most people nowadays will not acknowledge that they are particularly religious, but 69.0% of the population practises Shintō customs, and 66.7% practise Buddhist customs. They may have been learned from family and are treated more as traditions rather than something “religious”. There are a lot of Christian churches and schools in Japan, and even though many people send their families to Christian school, they themselves do not identify as Christian. And there are very few people that convert to Muslim or Christianity in Japan.
