The Tokyo Masjid

After the Russian revolution of 1917, some of the Turkish communities migrated to different regions of the world.  The 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 (Mosque) and school in 1938.  Japanese community gave a considerable support to the community’s services both economically and socially.

With years of wear and tear, the ageing mosque structure had to be replaced by a new large-capacity mosque . On behalf of Turksih Republic Religious Affairs Presidency, Mr. Mehmet Nuri Yılmaz  founded the Tokyo Camii Foundation (i.e. Tokyo Camii Vakfı).  Tokyo Camii Foundation imitated the Mosque’s construction in 1998 which was subsequently completed in the  year 2000.
