Buddhism l Christianity l Confucianism l Shinto

Confucianism was brought about by the teachings of the great philosopher, Confucius (Kong Fu Zi), who had lived in China from 551 to 479BC. The most basic yet important principles are humanity, loyalty, morality, and consideration on both an individual and political level.

In Japan, Confucianism acts as a code of ethics. Yet it has exerted enough influence to become part of a Japanese religion.

According to the early Japanese writings, Confucianism was introduced through Korea in the 285AD. Neo-Confucianism was the most important philosophy of Tokugawa Japan in government and education. Its influence on the Japanese society had been intensive, and is still very prominent today.
