The history of Islam in Japan began in the 1920s during the October Revolution with the arrival of several hundred of Turco-Tatar Muslim refugees who fled Russia and Central Asia.
In 1938 Muslims in Japan were estimated at less than 600, some Japanese also have converted to Islam through their contact with these newcomers.

In 2000, Keiko Sakurai announced in his book "Japan's Muslim Society" that Japanese Muslims numbered 63,552, foreign Muslims residing in Japan were estimated at 100,000.

In Japan, the Muslim community is mainly concentrated in the large urban cities such as Hiroshima, Kyoto, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo.

The writer Michael Penn estimates that 90% of Muslims are foreigners and that only 10% are Japanese.
Nevertheless, all these figures remain speculative because the Japanese government does not take religion into account in the demographic censuses for the sake of religious freedom, and does not record any statistics on the number of Muslims in Japan, whether being foreign residents or Japanese strain.

That being said the "Pew Research Center" estimates that in 2010 the Muslim community in the "land of the rising sun" counted 185,000 individuals.
