After Hokkaido, Fukuoka is also known as food paradise. One of their popular dish is Hakata Ramen. Unfortunately the broth is made from pork so Muslim cannot try the dish. Don’t be sad because you can still savor a bowl of Halal Ramen in Hakata eventhough it’s different from Hakata Ramen. The Life Cafe and Hostel offers Muslim friendly menu at their Cafe.
I first heard about Tomonoura (鞆の浦) when I came across an article about places that become inspiration for Ghibli movies. Anyone who watched Ponyo might recognize the scenery. The place looks soooooo beautiful in picture, so it became my must-visit list in Japan. Last Autumn, I finally had a chance to witness the beauty of this port town.
Narita Airport is one the most important airport in Japan since it handles around half the total Japan’s international passenger flight traffic. Can’t believe we haven’t written our review of prayer rooms (yes, it has more than one!) in Narita Airport yet! So, without further ado… here we go!
Bandar Udara Narita merupakan salah satu bandara terpenting di Jepang karena menangani hampir setengah dari total penerbangan internasional Jepang. Nah, karena itu makanya kudu banget dong kami mengulas musholla yang disediakan di sana.
AKB and their sister groups have their own cafe. Glay and L’arc-en-ciel also have their own cafe, even for a temporary. A little bit different case with LDH, even though the cafe is not related to any group, at least Amazing Coffee is managed under LDH. Then…. how about JE?
JE true to its nature as an anti mainstream agency of course doesn’t have one. So, some fans actually made their own cafe/bar as a hanging place for JE’s group fans. One of them is Bar Kanpachi. Based on the name, you may guest which JE group this bar is dedicated for. Yup, it’s Kanjani8.
Being the most populated city in Kyushu island, Fukuoka has an Islamic Culture Center named Al Nour. The masjid is not located in the city center but it is easily accessed by tourists who could not read/speak any Japanese and came to Fukuoka for the first time, just like us.
Who doesn’t love noodles? Who doesn’t know instant noodles? Moreover, who haven’t try cup noodles? Imagine eating it in this rainy season, so warm and yummy! But, how many of you know the story behind this magic cup of instant ramen? Yokohama Cupnoodles Museum will tell you all..
Among cities in Japan other than Tokyo, it’s probably Osaka that really cater the need for Muslim traveler. Halal/Muslim-friendly Restaurants are easy to find. Their airport has a special map guide for Muslim. There are quite a number of prayer rooms across the city, even in the city center, like the one we visited in Namba.
