Bismillah,
Assalamualaikum Brother Faisal,
 
Japan has mosques in almost every big city - you can google them out if you wish. The Islamic Center Tokyo connects muslim communities from all cities.
We do not have our own moon watch system, so follow the lunar calender from Malaysia - will be waiting for the Malaysians to announce the first of Ramadan ...
 
Food is a test here, but alhamdulillah, life in all entirity is a test, so I thank Him for all the blessings we already have.
 
The Japanese muslim community is growing, so please keep your brothers and sisters in your duas.

Hey Angel! Good to see you around.
 
Once a hindu friend here had an argument with a Japanease colleague, because this guy thought Yoga was from America ... yoga is not just popular, people are tending to forget its origin which aches many Indians :) Nevertheless its wonderful for body, mind and soul.
 
take care!

Salam
 Yes, it is haram to do yoga for exercise to relax your muscles because based on hadith we are not allowed to imitate another religion meditation in this case Buddhism.In Islam we have a way for relaxation by sitting towards the kabaa just like tashahud after we finish prayer be calm and relax,take long breath several times with your both hands on your knee and your body is moved up and down by saying subhanallah,alhamdulillah and Allah hu akbar as much as you can.

Strange to hear that yoga can be considered haram.

Only recently I was prescribed some specific breathing exercises - part of yog, and was told these are good anecdotes for stress. This person is very conscious, devout muslim.

Please be informed, yoga is not just meditation. Its physical exercise.
