Contemporary Practice of Islam and Religious Freedom in Japan
Nissa Ayu Qintani | I Ketut Surajaya 
Abstract: The development of Islam in contemporary Japan was followed by the development of Islamic religious facilities in this country. This article explained the practice of Islamic teaching in contemporary Japan and the positive response of Japanese society to the implementation of Islamic teaching in Japan. Although Muslims in Japan face many problems in carrying out daily religious activities, they can overcome these problems with the 'help' of Islamic countries and Islamic communities outside Japan. The government does not have specific policy nor facilitates on Islam or any other religions, because religious freedom is guaranteed in the 1947 Constitution of Japan. Government policies on ‘halal’ industry make it easier for Muslims to carry out their beliefs and also become economic spur for tourism purposes. This qualitative research was conducted using historical research methods and literature studies.
