Japanese of Dominican Republic

Introduction / History
More Japanese live in the Dominican Republic than anywhere else in Central America and the Caribbean except for Cuba. They speak Japanese and Spanish and follow Buddhism. Some are Catholics too.

After World War II, the Japanese migrated to the Dominican Republic, which had a treaty with Japan to open its doors to Japanese workers for agricultural labor. The Japanese had been promised houses and land but promises were broken after the civil war in the Dominican Republic. Many Japanese went to other Latin American countries and after the early nineteen sixties, only a few Japanese stayed in the Dominican Republic. Most of them live in Constanza.

The Japanese migrants sued the Japanese government for the suffering caused in the Dominican Republic and were compensated financially. The Dominican Republic receives much aid from Japan. There is a Japanese college here in the capital, Santo Domingo.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the sufferings of the Japanese in the Dominican Republic will cause them to come to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will find ways of getting the Japanese to realize the relevance of Christianity too.
