Introduction / History

The Japanese have a small community in Russia. A Japanese fisherman called Dembei got stranded in a part of Russia at the beginning of the eighteenth century and was told by the Russian Tsar Peter the Great to remain and teach people the Japanese language. In the nineteenth century, the Japanese began to emigrate to the Russian city of Vladivostok.

A number of Japanese came to live in south Sakhalin which became Japanese after the Russian and Japanese War in the early twentieth century. After World War Two, many Japanese returned to Japan from Sakhalin as it then all became Russian again. Japanese prisoners of war captured by the Russians were sent to camps in Siberia. Later, after relations resumed between the two countries, Japanese people went to Russia for political, business and education reasons. Many went to Moscow. There is the Japanese school in Moscow which is an international school. There is also a part-time Japanese school in the city of Saint Petersburg.

The Japanese in Russia live mainly in Moscow and Vladivostok. They speak Japanese and Russian. They follow Buddhism and Shintoism. Many of them are secular now.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will employ several ways of getting the Japanese wanting to give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Russian Christians will befriend them and lead them to salvation too.
