March for Life is a peaceful, joyful and prayerful annual demonstration marching by the people who hope to abolish abortion from the world for the children, for the women, for the families. Our March for Life in Japan began on July13 2014 at Tokyo organized by Lay Catholic Masaaki Ikeda with Pastor Kenzo Tsujioka of “Pro-Life Japan” after original March for Life in Washington D.C.


We go marching in the midst of Tokyo as a front line of Pro-Life movement in Japan every year, and also our March is going on every day to lead activities that would let society turn from accepting abortion to promoting Culture of Life.  


With spirit of whom being troubled by pregnancy, and regretted not having kept her pregnancy, we are marching toward the future unthinkable of abortion for anyone.

Let’s walk together for life!
