|Message / benefits to buyers · visitors||We will open a Muslim-friendly Japanese cuisine restaurant in Asakusa Tokyo on 1 Nov 2017.|
① Please tell us about something about your company and products (PR points).
On November 1, 2017, we are planning to open a Japanese restaurant offering Muslim Friendly Menu to Asakusa. We remove pork and pig ingredients and alcohol from the kitchen totally, and use products that have Halal certification for meat and seasonings. Although alcoholic drinks are offered, a special corner is set outside the kitchen for that. In addition, we set up a prayer room with washing facilties and we are planning to allow Muslims other than the restaurant customers to use the prayer room freely during restaurant hours. A Turkish Muslim was in charge of the restaurant design.
② Please tell us why you started to venture into the halal/muslim markets.
It is one of our new businesses that we are working on. There are an increasing number of foreign tourists visiting from Islamic countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia, while there are currently very few restaurants available for Muslims. We hope to contribute by providing Japanese food that Muslims can eat safely to Japanese fans and repeat customers by utilizing Japanese food technology which is one of our resources.
③Please recommend us the best way to enjoy your products.
Market research found that Muslims in Indonesia and Malaysia prefer meat. You can enjoy orthodox Japanese cuisine such as domestic cattle who received Halal certification, sukiyaki · shabu-shabu using wagyu beef, and tempura using seasonal fish and vegetables.
④ Please let us know what you look forward to at Halal Expo Japan 2017.
Since the Expo will be held soon after the opening of the store, the main purpose is to raise awareness of the store, but like our company, we are expecting to build a network with other companies working on Halal business.
