Metro Area: Tokyo, 37 million
Tokyo. The core of the world’s largest urban area by both population (37 million people) and economy ($2 trillion). The political capital of Japan and home of humanity’s longest-lasting monarchy. More Michelin stars than Paris and New York combined. The twenty-three special wards which constitute the heart of the city receive a daily influx of over three million commuters, more than the populations of twenty US states and nearly 100 countries. Safe, clean, and livable, Tokyo embodies Japan.
And yet the overwhelming majority of those who live and work in Tokyo have never heard the gospel. Over the centuries the city has been obliterated by fires, earthquakes, and bombings, and each time has risen again, but without tens of thousands of new churches, millions will go to the grave having never heard of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In 2020, Mustard Seed Network aims to launch a gospel-centered church plant here so that Tokyo may one day come to know, love, and glorify the one true God.
