Zen Buddhism and Shingon Buddhism are two notable sects of Japanese Buddhism. Pure Land, or Amidist, Buddhism is also significant in this country. Pure Land has its roots in India and China, however.

The main religions are Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The first two are polytheistic and the last three are monotheistic.
