Depending on the time period, a lot of samurai subscribed to Zen Buddhism as well. I am intrigued by your decoration efforts. Do you mean one corner of your flat with perhaps a scroll? If you are going for samurai living quarters, your decore will be very spartan in nature.
hi and thankyou it is one part of my flat mainly the entrance area up the stairs and the hall way where i would like to plaace a type of shrine in one part of the hall way where the 3 doors to other rooms meet.any suggestions on this would be gratefully received
on the other hand in the meiji restauration shintoism has been stressed as the emperors (the native) religion- so that it could be supposed that buddhism was quite strong under the edo bakufu as well....
They are a good balance for each other, well, from what I know of either of them. I need to find a good thread in the archives. Moyashi-sensei posted something great about a year ago...I will try to find it and revive it.
