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,...

This beautiful mosque is organized by Turkey community. It is a big mosque and full with beautiful ornaments inside. It also has function room downstairs where they... More

For most Muslim, it would be incomplete if they go thousands of miles away from home and not visit a Mosque from another country. Since it's the only Mosque in Tokyo, it's worth visiting and experience the culture there.

We walk about less than 500m from Yoyogiuehara station to this mosque. The beautiful Turkish architecture reminds me of Istanbul especially with it dome, minarets and marble finishing on its structures. There is an exhibition hall below the main hall which can be accessed from the outside entrance. Quite full of activity which I've seen at the notice board, they... More

Tokyo Camii or Tokyo Mosque, is located in Shibuya, Oyamacho. The Mosque is a part of Turkish culture center today. The history of this place is interesting i.e. The mosque was originally built as a school in 1938 by Tatar immigrants from Russia who fled to Japan after the October Revolution. There are about 80 mosques in Japan and this... More

We arrived just in time for the Asar prayer and there were less crowd except for a small tour group. I was amazed by the Mosque design both externally and internally. The mosque is compact and located in residential area and very quiet and peaceful. I could not find Halal restaurants in the neighbouring area though. The mosque is about... More

Being a Muslim, it has been a habit of mine to find a mosque in every country I visited. But this mosque is amazing since the architecture is similar to mosques in Turkey. It is located smack between 2 buildings. Thought it was a bit compressed and maybe small, but once inside, it is actually quitebig. Very easy to access... More
