Tokyo Churches and Places of Prayer

Tokyo Churches, Temples & Synagogues – Feel at Home

Looking for English language Tokyo Churches, Temples & Synagogues?  There are many places of worship in the Tokyo area that say English is spoken, and foreigners are welcome. However, I have found to feel truly comfortable and part of the congregation the service needs to be delivered by a native speaker and the congregation filled with members you can relate and feel at home. Here is a short-list churches, temples and synagogues that I think meet those needs. If you have a recommendation for a place of worship to add, please send to contact @BestLivingJapan. Also please check details at listed websites before you attend services since information can change. I hope you find the right place for you or your family!
