Format: Paperback
When I've searched for a general introduction for the subject of Japanese Buddhism, I wanted to find a readable, fluent in style and information kind of a book. Among the first results I've found was Tamura's book. After I've looked at the table of content and saw the full scale of this impressive overlook into the subject, I decided to purchase it with no hesitation.I found the historical details and the philosophical explanations to be very clear, especially when comparing various Buddhist sects as "pure land", " Ten Dai" ,"shingon" and even "future Buddhism".

For me, the book was a "must" as I was starting writing my seminar on Japanese Buddhism, and I found it captivating not only in style, but also in the depth of the explanations it gave.

I wish I had this book in college going for a degree in Asian Humanities. The historic facts were well researched and yet, plainly written for academic understanding. Well done.
