This article is an article following Must-try halal restaurants in the Tokyo area: Part1.

Lately, the number of halal corresponding restaurants has been increasing in Tokyo, but the overall amount is not that high. In a non-Muslim country like Japan, it is difficult to be a 100% Halal/ Muslim compliant restaurant, so each restaurant has a different degree of commitment.

Right now it is hard to find a source which summarizes this information, so it is assumed that many Muslim people who visit Japan might not know where to find a restaurant with a menu friendly to their dietary restrictions. 

So, this article aims to share some of that information in a concise and simple manner. We hope you find this useful!

[Note] This information is accurate as of 21st April, 2015. Please double-check before you go in case of any potential changes.
