Tokyo Camii Diyanet and Turkish Culture Center has welcomed visitors from many countries as well as Japanese to learn about Islamic culture and art since the Culture Center building opened in 2000. In order to meet the expectations of  visitors, the Diyanet Turkish Culture Center has been built and new facilities have been established.

The Halal Market is located on the first floor of the building, facing the corridor connecting the Tokyo Camii and the Diyanet Culture Center. The Halal Market is        used by many people since Halal food is difficult to obtain in Japan. It is also a place where visitors can experience a variety of food cultures, starting from Turkish, Malaysian, and Indonesian.

Right in front of the market is a spacious kitchen where foods are prepared every Friday after the mass prayer and dinner is served during the fasting period in the month of Ramadan. It is also used to prepare a variety of dishes and pastries for various events.

On the basement level, the auditorium (seating for 130) is designed in turquoise blue. This state-of-the-art auditorium is used for classes, lectures, and seminars throughout the year.

The third floor also houses an office named after “Abduresit Ibrahim” who was involved in the construction of the Tokyo Revival School and Chapel, the predecessor of the building.


“Abduresit Ibrahim” is used as a library and room for Tatar-related materials. The “Enver Apanay” is designed for children’s classes, and the “Abdulkhai Kurban Ali” is mainly used by elementary school students for religious studies and calligraphy classes. “Temimdar Mukhit”is used as an office for the Tokyo Camii publishing.

The newly built Diyanet Turkish Culture Center is a place where people can meet and get to know each other through a variety of activities, including lectures and events. The Islam religion encourages the search for knowledge. The religious and cultural activities connect people from all over the world at Diyanet Turkish Culture Center.
