Kobe, the origin of mosque in Japan

Kobe is known as the city where the first mosque “Kobe Mosque” was built. It is said that the implementation of construction plan of Kobe Mosque started in 1928 after the First World War. The mosque built in 1934 with the great contributions from a group of Indian and Turkish-Tatar people.

Kobe also suffered significant damage caused by air raids during World War II. However, Kobe Mosque was the only building that survived the attacks. The mosque recorded didn’t suffer major damage.

Currently, the mosque is mainly managed by Pakistani people who live in Japan. Not only Muslims, many Japanese people that are interested in Islam also visiting the mosque. In addition to Iftar and Eid prayer, other religious events are actively held at the mosque.

Cooking methods you can choose

Misono Restaurant prioritizes their customers to eat warm meals by having the Teppan (iron) plate in front of each table while keeping the style of Teppanyaki steaks. Therefore, they have provided two cooking methods, so customers can choose by themselves.

◯Style A: Halal cooking method
Although it differs from style A, they grill beef with dishes and cooking utensils exclusively used for Halal. They grill meat by placing the Halal Teppan plate on top of a regular Teppan plate.

*All ingredients and condiments used in both styles are Halal. Disposable plates and utensils are available
