Japan has around 40 mosques. There has been a mosque in Tôkyô since the early 1900's. The old Tokyô Jamii was inaugurated by Kazan Turkish emigrants in 1938 and was demolished in 1986. A new large-capacity mosque was rebuilt and funded mostly by private donations. Structured frame work was done by Kajima Corporation and finishing work was prepared by Turkish craftsmen and masters and completed in 2000.
