Only 2% of the nearly 126 million Japanese people identify as Christians.

A majority of the Japanese population practices Buddhism and other ethnic religions. Tradition remains an integral part of the Japanese identity, which has historically made it challenging to introduce Christianity to this region that is so steeped in its history and culture. 

After more than a decade of prayer, planning, and navigating the nuances of cross-cultural collaboration, we have finally launched our media missionary work in Japan. We have identified an in-country partner with an extensive church network who will help ensure that we create Christian content that resonates with the Japanese cultural context. We have recently launched our Instagram channel, and are expanding our social media presence across other platforms.
