There is only a few churches in the Kyoto city region, mainly traditional. If you return to Osaka I recommend the 'New Hope International Fellowship' (Hawaiian/Japanese church) that meets at the Dawn Centre at 2pm. The service is in both Japananese and English.
Pray about starting a church in Kyoto!

I found a great chruch in Kyoto it is called Kyoto Gospel church. It has around 200 members. the night service has bilingual preaching and the people are very friendly. They have English classes so plenty of people who can speak english. If you search on google for Kyoto Gospel Church you should find their web site. From Peter

I am a Christian and was raised as both a Catholic (church on Sundays am.) and Protestant(church on Sundays pm.) When I go to Japan I go to Shinto shrines, as that religion has some resemblances to the Celtic religion, and to Buddhist temples as they looks superficially like Catholic churches, with statues, candles, incense,etc. (I know that North Americans don't know much about the history of religions but surely they know that the first Christians used Celtic rites--we still use some nowadays-- and that the first Christian churches (the buildings) were former Celtic or Roman temples?)
what matter is that one pray directly to God. where one prays is irrelevant. Organised religion is basicaly a con job to control people and take some of their money and unfortunately most religions have committed attrocious crimes in the past to impose their views.
Most Japanese go to both Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples and tourists should do the same.
