New religions in Japan
Early examples of new religions in the 19th cent. are Nyoraikyō (cf. nyorai), Kurozumikyō (see KUROZŪMĪ MUNETADA), Tenrikyō, Konkōkyō, and Ōmotokyō. All of these emphasized the importance of lay members (over against the exclusive role of the priests in traditional religions), and made healing available outside the traditional rituals. In the 20th cent., important examples are Reiyūkai, Sōka Gakkai, and Seichō no ie.
