The Japanese Jesus Conspiracy: Visiting the Christ Festival in Japan’s Aomori Prefecture

Recently I decided to attend the Christ Festival in Japan’s Aomori Prefecture, a ceremony which celebrates the strange notion that Jesus lived and died in Japan.

Recently I decided to attend the Christ Festival in Japan’s Aomori Prefecture, a ceremony which celebrates the strange notion that Jesus lived and died in Japan.

Held early on a Sunday morning, the Christ Festival seemed strangely unchristian; instead the entire service came across as remarkably Japanese. But when you learn the story behind this myth, everything becomes quite a lot clearer.

I was also lucky enough to spend some time with the local villagers of Shingo Village, some of whom ran ‘Christ-Stop’, a convenience store devoted to selling Japanese Jesus-related products.

So yes, it’s all a bit confusing. But watch the video below and you’ll see that, well, it all makes sense in a strange way. Don’t forget to let me know what you think and please subscribe. Praise Japanese Jesus.
