Japanese Religion

Well, today is Christmas Day in the Christian calendar. It is the most important day of the Christian calendar as we celebrate the birth of Jesus on this day.

While in Japan we learnt a little of the religions. The two main ones are Buddism and Shinto. I found it interesting that one of our guides told us that most Japanese are born into one religion and die into another, then come the 25th of December, they all turn Christian for the day!

So for everyone reading this today, Merry Christmas to you all, and hopefully I will continue my Japanese adventure again tomorrow.
