|This page uses content from the English Wikipedia. The original article was at Talk:Buddhism in Japan. The list of authors can be seen in the page history.|
The content for my rewrite was taken from a list of bullet points, so this could do with some rewriting.
Also, the writeup currently lists only the active Japanese schools of Buddhism; the now extinct pre-Nara schools, eg. Sanron (Sanlun), are missing. Jpatokal 06:02, 9 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Nichiren is regarded as Kamakura Buddhism. Kamakura Shogunate was officially founded in 1192 but there are decades of dominance by samurai over nobility which led to this. Also, Nichiren's polemic against Zen and Pureland is famous. Also, I put Nichiren Soshu under Nichiren and then mentioned two main division, Nichiren Shu and Nichiren Soshu.
