Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Pure Land Buddhism in Modern Japanese Culture contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, the acknowledgements and the author's notes. Despite being one of the most influential forms of Japanese Buddhism, the Pure Land tradition, and notably its impact on the development of Japanese cultural history, has often been overlooked outside Japan. Taking into account recent scholarship on orientalism and occidentalism, the book, written from the perspective of the Study of Religions, provides an analysis of the impact that the Pure Land tradition, in particular Shin Buddhism, has exerted on mainstream forms of artistic expression (especially creative arts, literature and the tea ceremony) in modern and contemporary Japan.

Keywords: Japanese buddhism; Japanese cultural history
