The Situation of Christianity in Japan ~ Why has Christianity failed to catch on in Japan?
MetadataShow full item record
As one of the developed countries in the world, Japan shares similar cultural aspects with the U.S. For instance, the contemporary Japanese cities are filled with fast food restaurants, and it is very common to see advertisements and notices written in English. The young generation of the Japanese enjoys wearing jeans and watching Western movies, while the old generation has come to be familiar with U.S and European brand names. While these ‘Western cultural elements’ have positively been accepted by the Japanese, there are a few exceptions. The most remarkable one is religion. In the U.S, a church can be found on almost every block. In Japan, however, churches are few and located on the edge of the cities (except for Tokyo). This even applies to the suburbs and rural areas. Hence, one question came to my mind: Why has Christianity failed to catch on in Japan?
