Prayer Space Now Available Inside Kokusai Hiroba

The Fukuoka International Exchange Foundation has opened a Muslim prayer space inside the Kokusai Hiroba. The number of Muslim visitors to Fukuoka Prefecture from Southeast Asia has increased dramatically in recent years. The new facility has been established for visitors looking for somewhere to pray in central Fukuoka City. The center also provides counseling for international residents and aims to offer support to people from other religions and cultures. (Please be aware that there is no area for worshipers to wash their feet in ACROS Fukuoka.)
