Eating Halal in Japan
I was an intern on English Camp 2018 - what a time it was! But how did I eat Halal in Tokyo?
It’s no surprise that you can't assume food is Halal when you walk into a restaurant. The Muslim population is not high across Japan, but Tokyo has Nepalese and Turkish communities which makes finding Halal food reasonable.
One advantage you have is apps! For me, Halal Gourmet Japan and Halal Navi made life easier. These apps find halal places near your location and organise them by type of food. In the mood for a kebab? Turkish place down the road! Want curry? Indo-Nepalese restaurant round the corner. Halal ramen? Just one station away.
Let's cut to the chase - you're here for my recommendations. Here are some of my favourites from last year!
