Importance of Churches in Nagoya area for people from other countries
I have been an organizer of this English Speaking Community in Nagoya for almost 1 year and met a lot of people from different countries. I got many questions from them about Japanese culture, sight seeing places, manner in Japan and sometimes how to buy glasses in Japan. I realized that how difficult it is to live in Japan and adjust Japanese society especially for those who can’t speak Japanese well.
One of questions that I have frequently had these days is about Churches in Nagoya. There are a lot of people from the Philippines and Brazil in Nagoya area. They commonly believe Christianity. Christianity is a really important part of their lives so in this page I would like to share information about three Churches in Nagoya area.
