Hi Ryan,

It seems you may have tried this, but the NPO Hiroba has a great searchable database (by year, type, region, etc.) for all the registered NPOs. The current NPO figure it lists is 36,869. I am assuming you read Japanese. If you have trouble with the Japanese just get back to me, and I can help you find the key navigation. http://www.npo-hiroba.or.jp/

If you're looking for a number that includes non-registered groups, you're going to have a lot of trouble finding it. The best estimates I've found are in the Lifestyle White Paper, which comes out of the Cabinet office annually (http://www5.cao.go.jp/seikatsu/whitepaper/index.html).

You can probably find NGO stats in one of the MOFA White Papers.

Good luck.
