Abstract[Editor’s introduction] This review article by Kumamoto Einin approaches the
question of Buddhist identity in contemporary Japan from the critical perspective of
gender. In his examination of the works under review, Kumamoto brings to bear his
extensive knowledge of Buddhist and Gender Studies as well as his personal perspective
as a Sõtõ Zen priest to provide an at times scathing review of contemporary
Japanese Buddhist institutions and their relationship to the issue of temple families,
or jizoku 寺族. The first section is an introduction written especially for this issue by
the author about his original review of these works and their reception in Japan.
