Hello mina-san, Konnichiwaaaa. really hope you have a good day!!!!

The As-Salaam Mosque was built precisely in 2011 and the foundation became an official religious organization in 2014. The As-Salaam Foundation, located in Ueno, Tokyo, is a non-profit, non-political, religious and educational institution.

This mosque has just been renovated about 2 years ago. In addition to there are two main facilities here, the first place is for the Muslim community to gather, the second is the mosque for worship.



Unique Mosque

This mosque has several floors, besides that men and women are on different floors. There are 5 floors in this mosque. At first glance, this mosque does not look like a mosque in general, because this mosque is in a residential area and its shape is like an ordinary apartment house.
