The Ukrainian community in Japan, according to official data from the Immigration Services Agency of Japan, as of May 2023, has consisted of almost 2000 people who have the status of permanent or temporary resident. Most of these Ukrainians live in the country's largest industrial centers, such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, and stay in Japan for employment, study, or as family members. Besides them, Japan has accepted more than 2300 Ukrainians as evacuees fleeing from the war since April 2022, and provided them with designated activities status (permitting employment), as well as medical insurance and access to secondary education. Among them almost 400 are students and researchers admitted to 80 universities through crowd-funding and special scholarship schemes.
Four Ukrainian associations are officially registered in Japan: "Japanese-Ukrainian Cultural Association" (in 2018 in Nagoya), "Japan-Ukraine Partners Association" (in 2020 in Kawasaki), "Association of Friendship of Japan and Ukraine Krayany" (NGO Krayany) (in 2021 in Tokyo) and Ukrainian Association of Fukuoka Prefecture “UAFukuoka” (in 2022 in Fukuoka). There are also three Ukrainian Sunday schools: Dzhereltse and Hrobachok in Tokyo, and Berehynia in Nagoya. The Orthodox Church of Ukraine, established on the initiative of the community, has been acting since 2004.
