As JE fangirls, January probably the best month for you to go to Japan as there are so many concerts from different groups being held. We managed to go to not just one, but three concert venue. Sadly we didn’t actually attend the concert as we couldn’t get the ticket (someday we will!). So for our consolation, we went for Karaoke and made our own concert, lol. This particular karaoke chain located in Yotsuya-sanchome, Shinjuku not only a place for having fun, but also they offer Halal menu for Muslim visitor.
Tidak seperti Tokyo dan Osaka, di Fukuoka masih belum banyak restaurant yang menawarkan menu halal. Tapi di bandaranya sudah tersedia prayer room sehingga sudah mulai terlihat upaya memfasilitasi para pelancong muslim yang masuk/keluar Jepang melalui Fukuoka Airport.

Selamat menjalankan ibadah Ramadan bagi seluruh muslim! Sebagai muslim traveler, pengalaman berada di negeri orang saat Bulan Suci gini pasti seru. Mulai dari repotnya nyiapain makanan sahur dan berbuka, sampai lemas lunglai menjalani puasa yang lebih dari 18 jam. Tapi yang namanya Ramadan itu selalu indah, apa lagi kebersamaannya yang tetap terasa meski jauh dari orang-orang tercinta (awas, curcol!).
Kalau ada yang kebetulan lagi jalan dan singgah di Haneda Airport, kami punya info supaya ibadah Ramadannya tetap afdol meski sedang di negeri Sakura.

Setahun kemudian kami kembali ke Haneda Airport dan ada satu perubahan signifikan (terutama untuk pelancong muslim) yang terjadi, alhamdulillah…
It’s official name is actually Tokyo Camii & Turkish Culture Center. In Turkish, Camii means Mosque. The shape of the building and its interior design have reminded us of all the mosques we saw in Istanbul.
As one of muslim-friendly cities in Japan, Osaka provides information about halal food and prayer rooms. Those are the basic information for muslim travelers. Not only owns prayer rooms, this city even has a mosque.
Kansai International Airport, KIX in short, is one of muslim-friendly airports in Japan. In its Terminal 1, there is praying room dedicated to muslim travelers coming to Kansai area.
Being muslims simply does not hinder us to travel around the world. We admit that, sometimes, there is a worry on how and where we could perform our prayers. But nowadays, information regarding mosques or islamic communities is now available in most of tourist-destination countries, including Japan. This info was then used to prepare our trip.
We had a whole day in Nagoya, it was thus a must to pay a visit to one of its mosques. In Nagoya alone, there are at least 2 mosques listed on the internet. The one that we went to is about 20-minute away from Nagoya Station.
