Kobe Mosque (Masjid Kobe), Kobe

4.4
Kobe Mosque, also known as Kobe Muslim Mosque, was founded in October, 1935 in Kobe and is Japan's first mosque. Its construction was funded by donations collected by the Islamic Committee of Kobe from 1928 until its opening in 1935. The mosque was confiscated by the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1943. However, it continues to function as mosque today. It is located in the Kitano-cho foreign district of Kobe. Owing to its basement and structure, the mosque survived the air raids that laid waste to most of Kobe's urban districts in 1945 and was able to endure through the Great Hanshin earthquake in 1995. The mosque is located in one of Kobe's best-known tourist areas, which features many old western style buildings.The mosque was built in traditional Indian style by the Czech architect Jan Josef Švagr (1885–1969), the architect of a number of Western religious buildings throughout Japan.

  • Kobe Yamate trunk, located one on the street. Is a little East of Kitano the craft North Street tourist destination now, enjoy that atmosphere! Annotation) is called on, in Kobe referred North! Refrain from the Rokko mountains to the North if it says greatly, because the slopes are all moving to the North. For the Kita-ku, Nishi-Ku and Tarumi-Ku does not apply, however, so I'm sorry I!

  • Many moderate Muslims in foreign countries-mosque often seen in many countries. Because I had heard that in Kobe, look again. And hey, temashita care ago. Tour only because when you go to the Kitano Hotel, just had to look. Mosquera Mosquera, but Church-like atmosphere, ever seen so much that no type of thought. But didn't because it sensed the atmosphere not so feel free to put in: want to visit also.
