Michael Como
Published at $48.00 $9.95 (Save $38.05)

Makes a compelling argument that both the Japanese royal system and the Japanese Buddhist tradition owe much to immigrant lineages and deities from the Korean peninsula. Como examines a series of ancient Japanese legends of female immortals, weaving maidens, and shamanesses and concludes they played a key role in the dissemination of religion in early Japan.
