Buddhism goes back even further in Japan with the first reports of the religion recorded in the 6th century when it was introduced by royalty from Korea. It wasn’t until 35 years later though that Buddhism was widely accepted and Buddhist temples began to be built in well-populated cities including Heian and Nara. Ramadan is practiced by almost all Moroccans and during the month of fasting, Muslims are prohibited from drinking, eating and smoking from sunrise to sunset. During this time, travellers should avoid eating and drinking in public. Almost all Moroccans follow Islam and a large majority are Sunni Muslims, belonging to the Maliki school of Islamic jurisprudence. Other minority religions include Christianity, Judaism and Bahaism.
