What Customs Keep Structure in a Society?
The first custom is about religion. They practiced Shinto, Amida Buddhism, and Zen. Amida Buddhism is where they believed that everybody could reach paradise. Zen Buddhism is where they meditated for hours cross legged without moving. By doing this, they would reach enlightenment. If you believed in Shinto they loved and respected nature. They worship kami which are natural objects such as lightning, rivers, mountains, waterfalls, large trees, and unusual rocks. Religion helped structure society by only having two main religions which helped people be safe because if people disagreed on religions there would be a lot of chaos. Society would be different because the Japanese might not be calm which could cause wars.
