For the most part, no, not in the way Christians, Jews and Muslims think about God.
However Japan may be "The Most Religious Atheistic Country"
religion in Japan isn’t something that you can choose whether to ‘believe’ or ‘not believe’ in. It’s so prevalent and all-encompassing that one cannot exist without the other. Perhaps the philosopher Daisetsu Suzuki got the answer right all those years ago. He argued that religion was so infused into Japanese culture that just by being born Japanese and taking part in the rituals and observances, you become part of the ‘religion’.

Muslims pray 5 times per day, how many times a Christian pray per times per day? And Jews pray 3 times per day, right?

There are no strict rules about prayer for Christians.

Do Jewish religion consider a sin if they don't do a prayer of the three they taught?

I don't know but I doubt it. In any case, there are many different sects (as there are with Muslims) with different rules.
You can read through this for more information.

Prayer is a connection between human and God.

God helps people who pray in the difficulties and dangers.

God is a name that is given to the creator and owner of the world.

Surely whether a colorful and beautiful fish undersea or a songbird in the woods have a creator who is one. He also is the creator of man, nature and space. He created the sun, moon, solar system and also numerous galaxies and stars.

We should prayer to God because he can do every possible and impossible work.

Nobody can interfere or meddle in his management and operation in the universe.

Although he is merciful essentially, nonetheless we should ask him to be more merciful with us. Prayer does mean respect to God and asking him.
