Moving Prayers: The 2020 Olympics in Tokyo will have a ‘mosque-on-wheels’

If you’ve never heard of a mosque-on-wheels, you’re about to. The Japanese city of Tokyo has developed what is called a Mobile Mosque for Muslim tourists and visitors hoping to catch the 2020 Summer Olympics this July and August. The idea behind this innovation is to keep Muslim athletes and attendees not only happy and content but motivated as well.

The company behind this revolutionary idea, Yasu Project, will be setting up camp in venues outside the Olympic Games’ zones. Designated prayer rooms will be available in Athletes’ Village once construction is completed, yet some venues may not have one on hand. In those locations, Mobile Mosques will be set up outside for any who need it.

The company’s CEO, Yasuharu Inoue, hopes this venture brings awareness to the different people, backgrounds, and religions that exist in the world. He also wishes to promote peaceful and non-discriminatory behavior at the Olympics and Paralympics this year.
