Mosque in Yoyogi Uehara

When somebody asks me for a truly “weird” place in Tokyo, the Turkish mosque in Yoyogi Uehara is one of the places that comes to my mind. It’s not really impressive but if you visit it, it will make you feel like you are outside Japan for some moments, it’s a quite mysterious sensation. The mosque is located in Inokashira avenue, just outside Yoyogi Uehara station (Odakyu and Chiyoda lines)

    I would have never thought of seeing a Mosque in Japan. So what an eye opener this is. Would love to visit there someday. Now I’m curious to know more about the demographics in Japan.
