The Government of Japan has taken a unique initiative in view of the Tokyo Olympics.  A mosque on the streets has been prepared for Muslim players and their Muslim supporters who are participating in the Olympics.  This mosque built in a truck will be run on the streets of Tokyo.

 Apart from this, special rooms are also being constructed in the sports complex for praying in the Olympic Games starting in July.  However, no space has been created for this at the moment.  Actually Japan's capital lacks hotels and prayer places.


 A mobile mosque has been constructed by the administration to deal with this problem.  It is a prayer room built on the back of a 48 square meter truck.  In which all the facilities of prayer have been arranged.  There is a water system in this vehicle and it is written in Arabic so that no one has any problem.

 This mobile mosque has been prepared under the name of Yasu Project.  Significantly, the Olympic Games have been organized in Tokyo from 24 July to 9 August.  The CEO of this project, Yasuharu Ino, said that he wants players to participate in sports with their full motivation.

 Peaceful Olympic Games boost
 He said that this effort will give a boost to discriminatory peaceful Olympic Games among all the people around the world.  At the same time, the Olympic organizers say that they are trying to provide facilities for all religious people.  With this, a list of all religious beliefs is being prepared.  So that the needy can be helped.

 According to sources, the total number of mosques in Japan is close to 105.  However, most of them are outside Tokyo.  Such arrangements have been made for the Muslims who are offering prayers five times, do not have any problem.  At the same time, the project official Inou says that he was asked for such help of the players from Indonesia.
