Just a few short steps away from the famed Tokyo Masjid and in the adjacent street, lies a seemingly unimpressive building on the left side of the street. This is Yuai International School which has been imparting education to Muslims and non-Muslims alike from all creeds and nationalities for the past few years now.
The design of the building may not attract visitors. However, it has played an important role in providing a soft image of Islam to the Japanese community by offering courses on Arabic language, Islāmic studies, Calligraphy etc. for some time now. For the time being, the school offers only weekly classes to their students on various topics of interest. But, it has grandoise plans to expand in the future once they are able to gather sufficient number of regular students
Due to the proximity of the school from the Tokyo Masjid, and, of course, from the nearby Yoyogi Uehara Station as well, it attracts large number of students who come here to seek knowledge and to understand Islamic culture.
The school also hosts various cultural and social events for Muslims living in the Tokyo Metropolitan area. occasionally, it organizes summer camps and other cultural activities. The school is being managed by Islāmic Center Japan, the oldest Muslim organization in Japan.
