      > If you're overwhelmed with all that, I suggest you start with a few simple things:
      >
      > Paul Varley, _Japanese Culture_ (not sure what edition they're on now, I have the third one) ISBN 0-8248-0927-0. Good short overview in general.
      >
      > Donald Keene, _Seeds in the Heart_ ISBN 0-231-11441-9
      >
      > Very readable overview of Japanese literature up to the late 16th century. Actually, Keene has several excellent books out, but this is a good place to start.
      >
      > Kazuo Kasahara _A History of Japanese Religion_ ISBN 4-333-01917-6
      >
      > Thorough overview of religion in Japan up until about 1960.
      >
      > Steven Carter, _Traditional Japanese Poetry: An Anthology_ ISBN 0-8047-2212-9
      >
      > I always recommend this book, great introduction (with examples and explanations) to Japanese Poetry.
      >
      > William Deal, _Handbook to Life in Medieval and Early Modern Japan_ ISBN 978-0-19-533126-4
      >
      > Very nice overview of Japanese culture during most of SCA time-period (some Edo-era stuff as well). Just published in 2006. I wish this had been available when I started out.
