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.
