Convenient Application that Meet Your Expectation!
「There is no halal mark…」
「I don’t know what is inside as ingredients written all in Japanese…」
Those who just started living in Japan or visit Japan for a trip are struggling to find muslim friendly products. Even trying to look for the ingredient meaning through dictionary or asking to friends, there are many Muslims who spend much time on looking for muslim friendly products while shopping.
Then, to solve the struggle, we developed a breakthrough application!
Just Taking Pictures With Camera!
This application works by just analyze pictures of displayed products taken by camera at convenience or supermarket then you will know which one is muslim friendly product just in a glance.
This function installed as new feature on “Halal Gourmet Japan”, halal restaurant search site we are familiar with, collaborating with food determination system developed by NTT Docomo Inc.
Beta version of the application will officially launch on Sept 26, 2018.
Let’s Try It!
We tried to download and use the application.
The usage is very simple, just open Halal Gourmet Japan application then take picture, that’s it!
When we tried to take picture of ice cream corner at convenience store…

If you touch the pink frame, you can check detail information of the product like below.
（White frame shows non-muslim friendly product)
So How The Application Judge?
Definition of “muslim friendly” might be different from each others but this application is doing judge of muslim friendliness based on below standard.
Doesn’t it look suspicious to stand too long inside a store?
