Halal food can still be rather challenging to come by in Tokyo, especially if you're a tourist with little or no connection to the city's Muslim community. That situation may be about to change though, as plenty of local restaurateurs are starting to realise the business opportunity offered by increased tourism from predominantly Muslim countries both near and far. One example is this highly unimaginatively named Akasaka eatery, which offers modern Japanese cuisine in calm, relaxed surroundings.
