Abstract: In this thesis I propose that various negative social factors in Japan, most of which resulted from urbanization and modernization, were greatly significant in influencing the youth of Japan to join the Armageddon cult known as Aum Shinrikyo. I explore the relationships between post-war modernization in Japan, the decline of traditional religion and the surge of the so-called New Religions of Japan. I provide a summary of the Aum Shinrikyo movement, its beliefs, history, and founder. I utilize interviews with current and ex-cult members to determine why they joined the movement. Lastly, I address research on cults in general in order to draw valid conclusions regarding the Aum Shinrikyo phenomenon.
