- Over 300 years of history with many significant changes to society in all areas, political, economic, religious...The deep instilling of rules is something I clearly see today, whether being practiced or be resisted it is very evident in society here in Japan and clearly has deep roots. The melding of “religions” is clear as well ( I read this weekend as I visited Uji (between Nara and Kyoto where world heritage temples and shrines stand) and read that Buddhism is not a religion but a pathway of lifestyle. This is how it is seen in many ways here.
