In Europe and A merica, A ncestor-W orship has long since ceased to exist, even if it was ever practised at all on those continents. In Japan, where at the present time, a constitutional government is established, where codes of laws modelled upon those of Western countries are in operation, where, in short, almost every art of civilization has taken firm root, the worshipping of deceased ancestors still obtains and still exercises a powerful influence over the laws and customs of the people. The practice dates back to the earliest days of our history and has survived through hundreds of generations, in spite of the many political and social revolutions which have taken place since the foundation of the Empire. The introduction of Chinese civilization into the country was favourable to the growth of this custom, by reason of the fact that the morality, laws and institutions of China are also based upon the doctrine of A ncestor-worship.
