Fukuoka City Muslim Friendly Restaurant Guide

This guide introduces a number of the Muslim-friendly establishments in the city of Fukuoka, along with maps to help you find them. It is designed to help Muslim visitors enjoy their meals here in confidence. Made with the assistance of the Fukuoka Masjid Al Nour Islamic Center, it covers three categories of businesses: those under Muslim management, those frequented by Muslim residents of Fukuoka, and those that sell halal foods.


This guide is called “Muslim friendly” because the businesses listed here do not guarantee halal. They are all businesses that are frequented and appreciated by Muslim residents of the city, however. We hope the guide will help you to find the delicious meal you’re hunting for!
