Japanese of Taiwan

Introduction / History
Racially, culturally, and ethnically, the Japanese are one of the most homogenous people groups in the world. They identify themselves in terms of biological heritage, birth in Japan, a shared culture, and a common language (Japanese). Such an attitude makes it harder for Japanese living in other parts of the world.

The Japanese are well accepted in Taiwan today. The Taiwanese often imitate Japanese styles and food habits. Some Taiwanese have called their relationship with the Japanese in their midst as a "mutual love affair." Many Taiwanese regard the Japanese as closer to them than the people of mainland China. There is a false impression that there are a lot of Japanese in Taiwan, though there are not.

Where are they located?
The Japanese are located in Taiwan's urban centers.

What are their lives like?
The Japanese are most likely to work as businessmen in an urban setting.

What are their beliefs?
The Japanese in Taiwan are mainly Buddhist, but they include Shinto practices in their religious activity. They have a pragmatic approach to religion that excludes relationship with the spirit world.

What are their needs?
The Japanese in Taiwan need to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ, the only One who can guide them through life.

Prayer Points
* Pray for a spiritual openness among the Japanese in Taiwan.
* Pray for the Japanese in Taiwan to find Jesus as the answer to life's questions.
* Pray for a church planting movement among the Japanese in Taiwan that will spread to Japan.
