Muslim guide for Osaka merchants

Kyodo

The Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry has created a guidebook on how to serve Muslims, hoping to attract tourists from Malaysia, Indonesia and other fast-growing Muslim countries.

It plans to provide 5,000 free copies to restaurants and souvenir stores, and hold workshops on creating service facilities where Muslims can feel secure.

The guidebook covers basic knowledge about Muslim practices, including rules on food and alcohol.

It also calls for refraining from having Muslims look at Buddha statues or dolls.
