Muslim-friendly - venues with prayer rooms and halal food

Fukuoka, "Gateway to Asia" and the closest city to the Asian continent. It is also a handy starting point and hub for travel in Kyushu, attracting visitors from around the world for its nature, history, culture and food. Numbers of Muslim visitors from all around Southeast Asia are also growing thanks to the relaxation of visa conditions and  increased low-cost carrier (LCC) flights.
Islamic dietary restrictions and the need to undertake five prayer sessions every day are equally relevant at a travel destination. Here, we present (some of) the venues to use at your leisure so that you can enjoy Fukuoka and your daily rituals without being inconvenienced.

What is halal?

Halal is what is permitted for Muslims by God (Allah) and the Prophet Mohammed, and haram is what is not.
