TANSEISHA Co., Ltd. exhibited its “Wanoma” prayer room at the “Tourism EXPO 2014” held at Tokyo Big Sight from September 26 (Fri) to 28 (Sun).
This prototype worship and prayer room created by TANSEISHA is designed to help travel and tourism officials and local governments, etc. accept and support Muslim travelers.
This prayer room will contribute to the establishment of an accepting environment for foreign travelers as well as become a hot topic in tourist destinations across the country.
The “Wanoma” prayer room incorporates the spirit of omotenashi (hospitality) and spatial design unique to Japan while also providing an environment which considers the customs of Muslims.
TANSEISHA plans to develop variations including permanent-type, shop-type, and unit-type prayer rooms.
