Tokyo Camii, also known as Tokyo Mosque, is a mosque with an adjoining Turkish culture center located in the Ōyama-chō district of Shibuya ward in Tokyo, Japan. It is the largest mosque in Japan. The mosque was originally built along with an adjoining school on May 12, 1938 by Bashkir and Tatar immigrants from Russia who had come to Japan after the October Revolution. It was made under the direction of Abdürreşid İbrahim, the first Imam of the mosque, and Abdülhay Kurban Ali. In 1986, the mosque had to be demolished because of severe structural damage. Under the direction and support of Diyanet İşleri Başkanliği a new building was begun in 1998. The architect for the building was Muharrem Hilmi Senalp. The ornamentation was based on Ottoman religious architecture. Around 70 Turkish craftsmen performed the finishing details, and a considerable quantity of marble was imported from Turkey. The construction was completed in 2000. Tokyo Camii is 734 square meters in area. Its main dome is 23 meters tall and is supported by six pillars, while the adjacent minaret is 41 tall.

Having walked past this temple several times from my apartment I thought I'd add my thoughts. A simple yet lovely 'cool' building which reminded me fondly of my recent trip to Istanbul.

Getting to know the life of Muslims in Japan is certainly not easy, because they are a minority in this country. This mosque is the door to it. For the implementation of shlat, this mosque can accommodate up to 1,200 people human. Places of interest to know how Islam in Japan, both for Muslims and non-Muslims.

Alhamdulillah visited here for Friday prayers in 2010. Sugoi! Such a wonderful building in the heart of Tokyo. Makes u feel like you are in Turkey. Khutbah was in Japanese, Turkish and I think English. Good memories here and was treated to lunch by a kind Japanese Muslim gentleman after prayers. May Allah bless this mosque and the kind japanese... More

Looks great, the architecture is strictly influenced by Islamic/Turkish design (no Japanese design influence at all). Very peaceful. They had a small stall at ground floor, sells juices and dried fruits and others imported from Middle East. Love the view, but nothing extraordinary.

This mosque resemble much of a Turkish mosque. The only different is that it is in Japan. The mosque is not that big like those in Malaysia but it serves its purpose. The prayer hall is on the 2nd level. The abulation area is on the 1st floor. This mosque is along a quiet neighbourhood. Very nice feeling.

This is a Turkish mosque in Tokyo. To go in and see, you don't have to be muslim. It is open to all people. If you wear and behave accordingly, you can even enter inside during a prayer and see how muslims pray. On Fridays, around 1.00 PM, you can also eat Turkish rice with beans and enjoy yoğurt drink,...
