JCB International, as the only Japanese payment services company, has released the Halal Tourism Guide to attract more Muslim tourists to the country.
The guide provides restaurants suitable for Muslims in Japan and provides special information for Muslims who must follow dietary restrictions for religious reasons.
The company cards are used by 130 million people worldwide, including in Islamic countries such as Indonesia, India and Pakistan.
Sales of the Islamic tourism market amounted to about 151 billion dollars during the year 2015, which represents 11.2% of the global market, and is expected to increase to 243 billion dollars by 2021.
In recent years, many Muslims in some Asian countries have chosen Japan as their destination.
