History

Started in the early years of 21st century  the Center started its function and activities on a small scale, from a modest town house situated in Tsu-shi Edobashi Kuromiya. But the Board of Trustees of the Islamic Center aspired to build a new impressive Center in a way suiting its prestigious position and the important Islamic role it plays, and also, to be one of the landmarks of Tsu City. Thus, an overall project comprising a Masjid, a house, a kitchen, and residence for its Imams was planned. The Board of Trustees directed their attention to start with the first phase of this project: The Masjid of Mie-Ken.

History of Mie-Ken & Muslims Cultural and Islamic needs:

Mie Prefecture , is a prefecture of Japan which is part of the Kansai regions on Honshū island. The capital is the city of Tsu. And the total Land area is 5,777.22 km² with a population of 1,855,177. Muslim community is about 600-700 in Mie-ken and there was no Masjid or cultural center for Muslims to fulfill their Islamic & cultural needs. Starting from 2000-01 in Mie University Muslim student population was about 50-60 and they use to pray and do cultural activities in a rented room in Tsh-shi Edobashi Kuromiya. Then it was registered as Mie Islamic Culture Center in Home Office in 2004-05. The Muslim population increased since then and the requirements of cultural and Islamic activities grew also with the people and then MICC decided to get a new and a bigger place for Muslim community to fulfill needs of Mie-ken Muslims as well as Japanese Muslim community & non-muslims in larger perspective.

Mie Masjid was established from August/September 2008 to April 2009.
