Why Japanese People Say "I'm Not Religious"

When Japanese people are asked their religion, 70 percent of them say no religion but they often visit shrines and temples, pray to gods, and enjoy many religious events all year long.

After enjoying Christmas, at New Year's Eve we go to temples and listen to the ringing of the new era's bell and in the New Year we do something called hatsumode the first visit of the year to a shrine.
