A project to develop Mobile Mosques is underway in Japan, as the country prepares for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The Mobile Mosques are expected to help accommodate Muslim Olympic visitors.
“As an open and hospitable country, we want to share the idea of ‘omotenashi’ (Japanese hospitality) with Muslim people”, said Yasuharu Inoue, the CEO of the project.
This model was unveiled on Monday by a group of firms working on the project. The air-conditioned room on the back of a modified 25-ton truck can accommodate up to 50 people.
