The sight of a mosque in Tokyo is quite unusual. This mosque was newly built in 2000 with the contributions of the Turkish Republic and the Tokyo Mosque Foundation (which was around since 1938). This is the main hall with its ornate decorations inspired by Turkish Heritage.
"Today everything comes under the laws of competition and the survival of the fittest, where the powerful feed upon the powerless. As a consequence, masses of people find themselves excluded and marginalized: without work, without possibilities, without any means of escape." ~ Pope Francis
