With the word Wine, the alcoholic drink made from fermented grapes comes to mind, which is forbidden in Islam.
Wine, not only used as a drink, but it is recommended for health and also is a popular drink that accompanies and enhances a wide range of cuisines, from the simple and traditional stews to the most sophisticated and complex haute cuisines. For health and cooking! But how a Muslim can consume wine if it is not Halal?
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.
Whatever country you may live in, it is only sensible and respectful to learn the language, which obviously makes everyday living easier too.
Swapping lessons in your own language with your new Japanese friend is a good idea. Private tutor is another way if you can afford.
However, joining a class would be more fun and sociable too, especially if it is free. Kominkan is where you can get Japanese language lessons for free and also get to know many people including foreigners who live in your neighborhood.
