Hi Chi,

yes, that's true. Most Croatians are catholic (I would personally estimate about 80% of the population in Croatia).

As for your second question: I would say yes. The religion has influences onto the food habits. One example are public holidays. There are specific days were most Croatians (and Catholics in general) don't eat meat for example.

Hope that helps!

Greetings to Japan! :-)
By the way, Japan is on my "life travel list".
