About
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.

Jum’ah / Friday prayer
Jan 2020 • Family
A beautiful masjid, it seems that you were in Istanbul or any place in Turkey.
The masjid delivered a sermon in Japanese, Arabic, Turkish & English.
If you were a Muslim, and you were in Tokyo- it’s good to take a Friday prayer or any prayer.
It’s a good reminder that Islam is anywhere beyond culture, citizenship or the color of the skin.
Allah, swt & The Almighty is the Lord Of Men across continents.
Thanks that I visited & prayed on this masjid.
There is also a grocery intended for us who preferred certified halal foods.

Beautiful Masjid
Sep 2019
Tokyo Camii is a beautiful masjid although it is not very big compared to a masjid in Muslim countries, still, it is one of the biggest masjids in Japan. only around 400m from Yoyogi-Uehara station (odakyu line from shinjuku). The wudhu place is in the first floor. In the first floor, you also can visit the Turkish culture center along with halal store. It is indeed an interesting place to visit in Tokyo.

Although the location in Japan, the mosque's architecture is in Turkish Ottoman style. Various ornaments, equipment and materials used were imported from Turkey. This mosque reminded with the famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey.

It has three floors.The first floor is for Turkish cultural center and multipurpose room that can be used for various activities such as discussion and wedding ceremonies. The second floor is prayer for male and the third floor is prayer for female.

This beautiful mosque is open to anyone who wants to visit as long as women tourists have to cover their hair with the hijab provided at the entrance of the mosque and for male tourists not to wear shorts

To visit Camii Mosque, stop at Yoyogi-Uehara Station then walk to the east about ten minutes to get Camii Mosque.

東京にモスクがあることを某不思議発見番組で知り、行ってみました。日本語ツアーは自由に参加可能で、イスラム教やモスクのことを少し知ることができました。ちょっとした小旅行気分で参加しましたが、是非オススメしたい場所の1つとなりました。

This mosque is easily accessable from YoyogiーUehara station(it's near shibuya). This was my first visit to mosque, but I could learn something about Islam and mosque thanks to free japanese tour. One of recommended places in Tokyo.
