Japan, land of the rising sun is aiming to be more Muslim friendly by expanding the services to believers in Islam. Many Muslims are visiting Japan as tourists and many others are trying to find a way to study, work and live here.
The Muslim population in Japan is still relatively small, so is the number of necessary shops for Muslim’s daily needs like hijab stores. Finding the right hijab dress for your personality, for an occasion, or for everyday wear can be difficult especially when you don’t have many choices.
In Japan, finding Halal products has become easier in recent years, but not all of everyday essential products.
Also, if you are not living near a Halal shop, not only you are going to spend a considerable amount of time, but also pay for transportation every time you need to buy something.
Having free time for shopping and transportation cost, are not the only obstacles that Muslims living in Japan have; especially newcomers may spend hours in supermarkets reading foods’ labels to make sure they do not contain Haram ingredients.
The first Muslim fashion show will be held in Japan in November as part of Halal Expo Japan 2016.
Organized in partnership with the Malaysia-based Moslema In Style, Tokyo Modest Fashion Show will take place at Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center on November 22nd and November 23rd. It will feature the world of 10 designers and brands.
