Introduction / History

Japanese traders came to the Philippines in the eleven hundreds. The Japanese controlled the Philippines in World War II and some Japanese from those days live in the Philippines.

Many of the Japanese in the Philippines today are descendants of Japanese migrants who arrived twenty to thirty years ago. Their parents are mainly Japanese business men who married local Filipino women. Some are descended from Filipinos who went to Japan to work in the entertainment industry.

There are more Japanese in the Philippines than there are in other southeast Asian countries. There are Japanese schools.

The Japanese in the Philippines speak Japanese, Tagalog and other Philippine languages. Those who are religious follow Buddhism, Shintoism or are Catholics. Many of them live in the capital Manila or in Davao.
