Mosques and places of prayer in Japan

Many people believe that Islam in Japan is a foreign culture far from the people of the country that has nothing to do with the lives of ordinary people. But in fact, there are several surprises that expatriates notice, filled with the atmosphere of Islamic culture, and many of its features and attractiveness.

To provide better service for visitors and residents Muslims in Japan Equally, prayer rooms with arrows pointing in the direction of Mecca have been added in a host of public facilities such as major airports and a small number of Muslim-friendly hotels.

The areas surrounding the major mosques usually contain Muslim-friendly shops that may cater to visitors' needs in this regard.

Mobile apps are available with timetables and a compass to help find the direction of Mecca.

It is recommended to ensure that these applications work abroad, and to set up Internet access arrangement before visiting Japan.

It is also recommended for visitors to bring their own rug and clothing as it is not readily available.

Mosques can be found in most major cities for those who want to visit one on their trip.

Tours for Muslims in Japan

Mosques in Japan

There are about 80 mosques in Japan, many of which are relatively small, and Tokyo Camii is the largest place of prayer in the country, accommodating about 1,200 worshipers, and this magnificent Ottoman mosque is located in the heart of the Japanese capital.

Located in the heart of a quiet residential area of Yoyogi Uehara, a short distance from the bustling downtown areas of Shinjuku and Harajuku, a tall minaret and an impressive dome are built into it.

This is Tokyo Kami, the largest mosque in Japan, which was built in an impressive Ottoman style, architecturally similar to the famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul.

Mosques can be found all over Japan's major cities - a fact that will likely come as a surprise to most Japanese people, who remain largely unaware of the Islamic culture thriving in their midst.
