Tokyo English Christmas Church Services 2015

Tokyo English Christmas Church ServicesIf you are in Tokyo for the holidays, consider attending one of the many beautiful Tokyo English Christmas Church Services. We have listed up seven churches in Tokyo and a handful in Yokohama and Osaka. Some of my best memories of a child are attending services. Even if you are unable to frequent church during the year make your Christmas even more special with family and friends and visit this Christmas to remember and worship!
