The Mobile Mosque was unveiled just as outside the Toyota Stadium this week, in Toyota City which is home to the global powerhouse that shares its name. The vehicle is on the whole based on a 25-ton truck that holds an internal capacity of 48 square meters and it can accommodate up to 50 people after extending out its cabin in an accordion-configuration. A separate section is also part of it that will allow the worshipers to perform wudu or spiritual cleansing all by means of using water stored that is accessible via taps just like the set up in a typical mosque.

At the same time, people coming all the way from Indonesia, Malaysia, Africa, the Middle East and, for example, refugees who are coming from Syria are able to use the mosque as a tool to engage them as to promote world peace. Japanese capital will be hosting a summer edition for the second time, as from 24 July to 9 August 2020.
