5 years, the government of Japan conducts a
nationwide population census. As of October

per legal regulations, everyone living in Japan,
regardless of nationality, must take part by
filling out the census form provided by a census
enumerator who will call on you twice between
late September and early October (once to distribute
the census form and another time to collect
your completed form). Information obtained from
the census will be used only for statistical
purposes and will never be used for immigration
control, taxation or policing.
residents of Japan can contact The Tokyo Metropolitan
Government with any queries regarding the census.
