In the room, we did pray in the tatami space! Such a great experience to perform pray in Japanese-style room.
Got excited, we put our luggage in the room and went to supermarket to buy some food for dinner.
Do you know that Gyomu Super, one largest supermarket in Japan which has a lot variety of halal foods, is available near the hotel?
Gyomu Super has halal food corner with stand-out signboard, so we found it in quite easily.
There you can find halal meat (chicken, beef) as well as halal Japanese seasoning, so you can make not only home country’s food, but also Japanese food!
Enjoy Precious Time with Loved Ones
Back to the hotel, we started to cook dinner. As we mentioned above, they have halal-only, clean and complete cooking and table ware. This time our menus are ramen (using Samurai Ramen!), Indonesia’s nasi goreng, and fried shrimp!
At the tatami space, there are square table with cushion where we can enjoy the meals. It feels so international, where we enjoyed both Japanese and Indonesia foods, in a Japanese-style room!
After enjoying the meals and still in the tatami space, we lay out the futon and enjoying togetherness while having girls talk.

Since it is located in the popular Ueno area, there are a lot of entertainment and sightseeing spots nearby, as you can find from Tokyo MAP for Muslims.
This time we were able to visit Assalaam Masjid where you can do pray while get connected with Muslim residents. For men, you can do Friday pray here too (pray time may vary according to season).
120 meters from the mosque, there is a halal shop selling various of halal and imported stuffs. A lot of Muslim residents living nearby or visit the mosque come to shop there.
A few minutes away from the mosque, there is Ameyoko, a busy market with slightly narrow street filled with abundance of products, from raw foods and fruits, until bag and miscellaneous items which is quite popular among Muslim tourists. We found about Ameyoko through Tokyo MAP for Muslims!
Don’t forget to take picture in the entrance of Ameyoko!
Nearby the Ameyoko market, there is a huge Ueno Park which is well-known with its beautiful cherry blossom during end of March to beginning of April that calling a crowd of both foreign and domestic tourists that come in droves to do hanami (literally means “flower viewing”, a Japanese traditional custom of enjoying transient beauty of flowers).
