Hello. As far as I know, centiries ago Taoism was introdiced in Japan and while not having the impact of Confucianism or Buddhism, left its mark on 陰陽道 (Onmyōdō), 修験道 (Shugendō) or 風水 (Fūsui). I'm particularly interested in the way Yin-Yang concept (陰陽 Inyō) is considered part of Japanese culture and if the Japanised Feng Shui (風水 Fūsui) is taken into account when constructing buildings as it occurs sometimes in Taiwan. Despite a little bit more distant with Taoism, I'm intereted in how far is I Ching book (易経 Ekikyō) considered to be Japanese.

Thanks
