Japan is a wonderful country with a rich and illustrious history.
Although Japan's major focus has been on industrial innovation in the past, the goal now is to bring the cultural treasure that has been overlooked in the shadow of history to the attention of tourists from across the world, making them feel "This is what Japan is all about—I want to come back."
Generally, the aims and objectives of Islamic organizations in Japan are to promote halal awareness among food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic producers, as well as halal tourism services such as hotels and restaurants. Japan’s food sector and tourism industry were not familiar with the concept of halal, but now they are striving to seek new local and international markets through halal. Halal, which is a term exclusively used in Islam, has now become a universal concept.
Globally, Muslims make up the second largest religious group, with 1.8 billion people, or 24% of the world’s population. It is estimated that there will be 160 million Muslim travelers by 2020, and the figure is expected to increase to 230 million by 2026.
In recent years more and more Muslims are traveling to countries where they see the lifestyle as such that their religion is respected. In contrast to other people, Muslims tend to travel in larger groups and stay longer when they travel.
