    Religion in Japan

    I know that Shinto and Buddhism are Japan's largest religions but I was wandering if Japan's youth carry on with the same traditions or have they kind of lost touch with the older generations beliefs. It seems like many of American's youth have left their Christian upbringing to either pursue other religions or none at all. Is it the same in Japan?

    To answer your question, it really depends. Almost all of them are believers of Buddhism and Shinto-ism [if I may say]; they follow a religion. There aren't many atheists in Japan.

    Anyways, most of the youth are religious and they do respect their religion, but they don't get exposed to religion as much as in past times, expect for the monks who work in temples. ^_^

    Most are Christians? In Japan? It's less than 1 % here. Islam? No.

    I should have been more clear-er. Sorry. Certainly, you can find mosques and Churches in Japan, but it's HIGHLY rare to find a Japanese who converted into being a muslim. That's what I meant. ^_^

    Yea yo can find moslems in Kobe. So you no need worry about the foods... considered Islam is quite strict about the food.

    Lives link to one another, and the world continues...

    Yes, that is true especially when you take into consideration that the younger generation (some of them...it's been increasing) celebrate holidays out of their religion (such as Christmas...and I mean the secular Christmas, not the religious one...well...maybe they do...).

    Just because they are from a different country doesn't mean they treat certain things differently from other places.

    DEMON SPAWN IS AWESOME!!!!! XP

    Well Japan aren't they strict about following traditions.
    Though i guess i shouldn't be surprised if the younger generation, doesn't respect it.
    But as far as i know, many or most celebrate the festivals that are related to their religion.
