14 Recommended Halal Restaurants in Osaka

For Muslims travelling to Osaka, Japan, save your time searching for halal food because here are some recommended halal restaurants for you to enjoy.

Here are some recommended restaurants in Osaka that offer halal food or Muslim-friendly menu. If you’re able to visit Osaka, try these restaurants in order to fill not only your heart but also your stomach.

In a non-Muslim country like Japan, it is difficult to be 100% Halal / Muslim compliant, so each restaurant has a different degree of commitment.

Currently, it is extremely hard to find a source that lists the information, so it is assumed that many Muslim people who visit Japan would feel anxious about what they can eat.
