Whether you're in Tokyo for just a short while or travelling for long, we're pretty sure you'll find the market convenient. We know how tough it is to step into a Japanese supermarket and not know which products are halal as everything is in Japanese. But at this market, all the products are halal, so you don't have to worry ?

Even if you're not looking for a supermarket, the Tokyo Camii is well worth a visit! Not only is it Japan's biggest mosque, but it also has a gorgeous Turkish architecture, which resembles the mosques in Turkey. Although the mosque is home to the Turkish Culture Center, it's welcoming of everyone and it's a great place to meet Muslims from all over the world. During Ramadan, the mosque comes alive with iftar gatherings too ? So, if you're heading to Tokyo anytime soon, time to add the Tokyo Camii (and market) to your list!
