I can say from personal experience in my teenage years that one of the most attractive things about religion is that it takes away the need to make all kinds of difficult decisions. In Japan, most of those things are decided by other people or social pressure anyway, and traditionally were more decided by Confucianism (which isn’t a religion) than Shinto and Buddhism.
Why aren’t the Japanese more religious? Third attempt
