v “While this book is about Japanese religion, my
goal is to frame the discussion in such a way that
when readers put the book down, they will have a
deeper knowledge of Japanese society and culture
in general, and possibly even deeper insight into
the nature of religion itself. The book deals with
the relationship between Japanese religion,
culture, and values on the one hand, and society,
social change, and economic development on the
other”(Davis, 1)
