Christmas Religious Services in Fukuoka 2022

While the commercial side of Christmas is well and truly appreciated in Japan, with banners adorning every shop window and promotions left, right, and center, the spiritual side can be lost. If you want a more Christian Christmas for the sake of religion, tradition, curiosity, or community, there are several churches and centers across Fukuoka that will cater to your needs. Fukuoka Now has rounded up a few local spots offering Christmas mass. Some churches provide bilingual mass in English and Japanese, and some even offer live streaming!
