A-Z Photo Dictionary of Japanese Buddhism … “The Face of Buddhism & Shintoism in Japanese Art.” Webmaster Mark Schumacher writes: “This photo library and dictionary is a labor of love. After moving to Kamakura in 1993, I became intrigued by the many deities and faces of Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism. There are dozens of temples and shrines near my home, many dating from the 8th to 13th centuries, many open to the public. There are now 1,000+ photos in this library, ranging from the treasures of Kamakura to those of Nara, Kyoto, and elsewhere in Japan.”
