Buddhism first entered Japan from Korea in the 6th century AD - about 1,000 years after the death of the Buddha. Confucian ideas from Han China had been current in the Japanese court since the 5th century AD. By the time Buddhism took root in Japan, an often mutually tolerant presence of three systems - Shinto, Buddhism and Confucianism - existed.
