Fukuoka Masjid

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.

Nagoya Mosque

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.
