What is the difference between "budo" and "bushido"?
Before circa 1930--nothing.

For a very enlightening read--revisionist even--see Bodiford on Religion and Spirituality in the Martial Arts: Japan in the Martial Arts of the World Encyclopedia. (Thank you PAG for the reference.)

(Hint: "DO", after the Russo/Jpn War, meant fealty to the emperor and all his insidious designs, not "Zen-influenced Ways"...)
