Tokyo Itinerary for Muslim Nerds: Tourist Sites, Restaurants, Mosques, Shopping, Pinned Map


So okay, we'll admit it. We are a couple who absolutely adores Japan, its culture, media, and of course the food! Travelling to Japan has been a life-long dream to finally see the land that produced Nintendo, Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Gundam, One Piece, and all of our Gaming and Anime & Manga favourites from childhood (and now!) as well as immersing ourselves in its bustling gamer, electronics, and technology culture.

We scoured TripAdvisor.com and various Halal Japan website recommendations to put together the ultimate Nerd itinerary for the ultimate Muslim Japan Fan, and the best sites, restaurants, shopping spots, mosques, and other points of interest that we think are worth your time.

To save this map to your account and your phone for quick reference at home and on the go, scroll to the bottom of this article for instructions.
