When the Soviet Russia began to rule in 1917, some of the Turkish communities migrated to different regions of world.

Kazan Turks, who had migrated to Tokyo, established a community called “Mahalle-i İslamiye” (i.e. Islamic District) led by Abdulhay Kurban Ali and Abdurreşid İbrahim and built a Cami and school in 1938. Japan community gave a considerable support to the community’s services both economically and socially.

The Cami was destroyed in 1986 because of many years’ wear and tear effect and building land was donated by Tokyo Turkish Association to Turkish Republic on condition that a new Cami is built.

Then, on behalf of Turkish Republic Religious Affairs Presidency (TC Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı), with the presidency of Turkish Religious Affairs’ President Mr. Mehmet Nuri Yılmaz was founded the Tokyo Camii Foundation (i.e. Tokyo Camii Vakfı). New Tokyo Camii Foundation initiated the Cami construction in 1998 and completed in 2000.
