Marvel as some 3,000 pedestrians navigate their way through Shibuya Crossing simultaneously.

"One of the most important things is Japan's culture of wisdom," says Masayoshi, a staff member at the Church of Scientology Tokyo.

"That is the beauty of our Church," says Mihuki, another staff member. "Scientology means 'knowing how to know.' And it's all about knowing yourself and knowing life. So, we want to bring that wisdom to the people of Japan. We are here to empower Japanese spirit, our culture, and our people."

In dedicating the Church of Scientology Tokyo in August 2015, Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige described the city as "a place of convergence between East and West" where "the ancient harmonizes with the modern, and all is knitted together by hope. So, what better place to witness the coalescence of spirituality and technology?"

The Church of Scientology Tokyo is an Ideal Scientology Organization, configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community, a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.
