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

Very beautiful mosque seems similar from the outside to the Higha Sophia masjid. Must go if you like architecture.

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

A real gem in tokio! The mosque was very unique and we enjoyed the quiet and relaxing time there. It was built in otoman style and has a mosque built in the same style in berlin (germany) from the same architect. It is rated as one of the most beautifull mosques of the world, according to a book we just... More

We visited Tokyo Camii last August during the fasting month of Ramadhan, when everyone regardless of religion was invited to share a meal. The mosque is a sight to behold, a fine example of the beauty of Islamic and Turkish architecture. You will instantly feel like you're really in Turkey! There were tours given by the staffs to Japanese and... More
