    Literally, the English phrase is translated into Japanese as "復活祭おめでとう". However, since the majority of the Japanese are 'pagans', people don't generally understand what Easter is all about, and consequently they are hardly interested in celebrating it. Unless you are a devoted Christian, I am afraid you hardly have an opportunity to use this expression in Japan in your life. Believe me.

    復活祭 = ふっかつさい = Fukkatsu-sai = Easter
    from
    復活 [ふっかつ] = revival, restoration, rebirth, resurrection.
    The last character of Easter means festival or celebration and is read as "matsuri" when on its own.
