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.

Taking photos on outer of the building, a man called me in the building, and entered. On the 2nd floor, there... More

Beautiful mosque and spacious praying hall in Tokyo, Japan. Walking distance from the metro station. I went for the Friday prayer and they do sell Japanese food before the Jumaat praying time, therefore you can have your lunch there. After Jumaat praying session they sell delicious Kebab for you to take away as your dinner :-).

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.
