Christmas Religious Services in Fukuoka 2019

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 somewhat lost. If for the sake of religion, tradition, curiosity or community, you want to have a more Christian Christmas, there are a number of churches and centers across Fukuoka which will cater to your needs. Fukuoka Now has rounded up a few of the local spots offering Christmas mass. Read on for more info.
