International students at Rikkyo University’s College of Intercultural Communication make Halal Map around Ikebukuro Station
International students at the College of Intercultural Communication of Rikkyo University made “Halal Map” on restaurants serving halal food—sanctioned by Islamic law—around the JR Ikebukuro Station near its campus.
Before putting recommended restaurants on the map, SEA members visited them and tasted their dishes themselves.
The members also received advice from faculty members of the college and well-informed persons to make sure the map becomes a reliable source of information on halal food to help Muslim students come to and study in Japan without unnecessary anxieties.
