It's Chrismas season in Japan!

If you are to be in Japan at this time of the year, you will believe what I am telling you that Japan is a Christian country. Of course, business people definitely seizes an opportunity of festive mood of Christmas so that, in all over Japan, Christmas decors permeated every shopping districts. But not only for the business districts. Quite high percentage of people in Japan considers Christmas as one of the important annual events in this country. Especially for young couples, arranging for a special diner in a luxury hotel or an expensive restaurant on Christmas eve has been a kind of modern life style's must for them. Then after the dinner, many of them take time to come to us, means to attend Mass in our Churches. For many parishes in Japan, Christmas midnight Mass provides highest annual Mass attendance.

I hope these people would meet and know the Savior, Jesus Christ.
