Halal Meats in Tokyo
Tokyo, a big city that attracts millions of people to come and living, not only Japanese but also foreigners from around the world. No exception for Muslims, Muslims come to Tokyo to study, work, business, and travel.
When you are living in a non-Muslim majority country, you will face the fact that food options become “picky”. You have to make sure if the food you buy or the groceries you buy is halal to consume by you and your family. When you come to Tokyo, you will see that most supermarket offers and sells express food which is food that is packaged in “bento” style for express grab and ready to eat. Unfortunately, most of those express food is not halal. Most Muslims who living in Tokyo cook their own food so that they can make sure that the food they eat is halal.
How about halal meats and groceries? It’s easy for non-Muslims who living in the city to buy their groceries and stuff to fulfill their daily needs. It’s not a problem for vegetables and fruits, but how about meats? Muslims only allowed meats that slaughtered using the law and way of Islam to slaughtered animals for food. Is it easy to get halal meats in Tokyo? Well, it’s not that easy, but it’s very much possible to get it.
