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.

It was a great experience meeting up with fellow Muslims who were very welcoming. Very nice place to take pictures who appreciate middle eastern architecture. After Friday prayers food was provided and created a great atmosphere to socialize.

We went there for a visit and were surprised by a group of students who were also entering to attend a talk. Which I personally think it's pretty cool that the kids there are exposed to different religions. The mosque itself is beautifully built with a little table with souvenirs where guests were to pay by dropping the money in... More

Leaving Yoyogi Uehara Station, we had to find our way to visit this mosque of over 100 years history in Tokyo. Soon we came to a corner Police Traffic Station and was kindly directed by the officer simply to cross the street and walking for 100 metres or so, we reached the bushy grey building with tall minaret behind the...

I visited this mosque with a friend. People working there were so nice to us, they offered us with some tea and turkish sweets. Many people visit this mosque, so if you are muslim it's a must! even if you aren't, it's worth visiting.

Japan is not about city trip to big city, when you arrived in Japan, spend your time to come to Yoyogi Uehara to visit this beautiful mosque. This mosque is not prohibited only for Moslem, Tokyo Camii represents tolerance in Japan. Many people can visit Cultural Centre of Turkey in Ground Floor, even you can try Turkish Tea for free....

I loved visiting this mosque. It is beautiful from the outside as well as the inside. We happened to run into a tour being given to other visitors and were invited to join the tour. Our tour guide was very welcoming and spoke English well. We didn't have any problems understanding him. He gave us a history of the mosque... More

My husband brought my family here as he was really interested in visiting a Mosque. It was easy to find using google maps and the neighborhood was nice. Upon entering, we visited the little shop on the first floor. We bought a beautiful notebook and a wall hanging and walked around. We didn't know if there was more to see... More

Turkish Style mosque which historically has people from various countries to visit. Since it is in the center of Tokyo, it is easy to accessible as a location. As a non muslim Japanese, I enjoyed going to some events of the Mosque every year.
