Introduction / History

The Japanese began coming to France later in the nineteenth century but in those days would usually return to Japan. The Japanese tended to come to France for reasons other than financial ones.

The Japanese continued coming to France in small numbers until World War Two when their immigration here came to an end during that period of time. After the war, well-educated professional workers such as journalists for example then came to live in France.

The Japanese in France speak Japanese and French. Of those who are religious, some of the Japanese are Buddhists and others belong to the Shinto religion. There are Japanese restaurants in Paris and in other places in France. The numbers of Japanese in France are small compared to the number of immigrants from Africa.

Japanese social life is linked to business. Many of the Japanese live in Paris. There is a Japanese international school in Paris. Some well-known Japanese people have lived in France.
