Introduction / History
The Japanese began to live in Micronesia just before the beginning of the last century. The Spanish ruled for a time and then Germany took control and at the beginning of World War I. the Japanese took control from Germany and ruled till the end of World War II. Many Japanese arrived between the two wars.

After World War II many Japanese were sent back to Japan. Most of those who were mixed Japanese and Micronesian and remained in Micronesia. The Japanese-Micronesians had the main positions at work. Micronesia and Japan began to work together in business and culture in the 1970s.

Some of the Japanese in Micronesia follow Buddhism and Shintoism. Some, particularly those who are mixed Japanese and Micronesian, have become Christians. They speak Micronesian languages and Japanese. Most of them live in Pohnpei and in Chuuk in Micronesia.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Micronesian Christians will lead the Japanese to salvation.
* Pray that God will show the way to get the Japanese to want to seek Jesus Christ.
