… the spirit of the latihan is already in the self of everyone.”   
Bapak Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo

Subud Japan is the national organisation for the spiritual community of Subud in Japan

There are approximately 150 people in Subud Japan and over 10 meeting venues where people come together to practise the ‘latihan kejiwaan’ (spiritual training), a form of worship through surrender to the Highest Universal Power - commonly called Almighty God.  This is something every human being has the capacity to feel and experience.

Subud Japan is a member of the World Subud Association (WSA), a not-for profit organisation with its headquarters in Washington DC (USA).  Subud originated in Indonesia and has now spread worldwide.  We welcome new members of 17 years and older.  Subud is open to persons of all faiths and those who do not follow a religion.  

Subud members are free to express their views on any subject consistent with the laws of the countries in which they reside.
