The Nationality Law, which stipulates naturalization to Japan, does not have any provisions regarding Japanese language requirements as a condition for naturalization.
However, in reality, Japanese proficiency is required when naturalizing in Japan.
Being naturalized in Japan means living in Japan as a Japanese person from now on, so it is natural that a certain level of Japanese language ability is required in order to live in Japan.
As for the level of Japanese proficiency required, I think it would be good to have N3 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (the ability to understand Japanese used in everyday situations to some extent).
If you are considering applying for naturalization, please feel free to contact us.
