Christianity is a minority religion in Japan, with less than one percent and possibly less than half percent of the Japanese population claiming Christian belief or affiliation. Nearly all known traditional denominations of Christianity, including Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, and Orthodox Christianity are represented in Japan today, with no restrictions on evangelism.

The root of the Japanese word for Christianity (教, Kirisuto-kyō) comes from the Japanese katakana transcription of the word Cristo , Portuguese word for Christ, and the Japanese word for doctrine (教, kyō, a teaching or precept)
