Narita airport to up Muslim services

Kyodo

Narita International Airport Corp. will offer new services for Muslim tourists at the airport near Tokyo as such tourists to Japan are surging from Southeast Asian countries.

The operator of the airport will double the number of worship spaces for Muslim tourists at the airport terminals to four and install places to cleanse their bodies at three of the four worship spaces.

The operator will also begin delivering halal food for Muslims in waiting lounges and plans to set up a “halal authenticated restaurant” without pork and alcoholic drinks.
