SANKYO UNYU AERVICE Co., Ltd., which has acquired JAKIM certification.
The head office is located in Koshigaya city, Saitama prefecture.
After having relocated the office, I came all the way to say hello.
In the domestic, we mainly work for co-op etc. We are based in Penang abroad and are working hard to develop Halal.
I listened to the situation of overseas and talked about domestic Halal, but policies that I wanted to deliver to everyone in the neat Harald have been passed on very much.
We hope to cooperate with JMA to spread Halal.
If you have a request for Halal's transportation, why do not you contact us once. There is no doubt that you can help us.
Japan is attracting much attention from overseas by culture and food culture, and tourists can also say eel is eeling through social media. Muslims are expected to exceed 700,000 in 2016 and reach 1.4 million in 2020 (Japan Muslim Travel Index 2017 (JMTI)).
There are many overseas who want to touch Japanese culture and want to enjoy Japanese unique food culture.
But when I come to Japan, there are many Muslims who feel that there is a problem with traveling such as having trouble with accommodation, which I can not eat just by looking at the end. It is in Japan that Haral correspondence, Halal menu, Halal products are few in Japan.
Unlike when I did not even hear the word Halal at all, Japan's Halal has increased somewhat, but it is limited to metropolitan areas and large sightseeing spots, and it is also one of the reasons for overseas giving up on Japan I will.
In addition, Muslims, foreign students living in Japan, foreign students living in Japan, those who newly work in Japan have a lot of hardships to eat and go out.
For Japanese people, it can be said that Halal food is a healthy diet. With healthy boom now, I think that together with organic vegan, we can also choose as a casual eatable item.
In 2017 the world population is about 7.3 billion people, Muslims (Muslim) is 1.6 billion people. Following Christianity, it is the second largest religion in the world.
Muslims are often found in ASEAN (Southeast Asian countries), while Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia are also mixed with nonhalals, Halal is regarded as common sense.
In Malaysia we operate the Islamic Development Agency (JAKIM) of the Malaysian Federal Government with Halal's certification as the country. Singapore is a nationally non-Muslim country, but Halal is penetrating to attract tourists, and the Singapore Islamic Council (MUIS) is certifying. About 90% of the people in Indonesia are Muslims, there is Indonesia Urama Council (LPPOM - MUI).
Also in the Middle East (United Arab Emirates UEA) there is a certification body called the Federal Institute of Standards and Measurement (ESMA).
Halal standards are set for each country, and strict investigation and standards are set up to protect Hallar properly and live. There are various environments such as Muslims taught Halal since birth, Muslims of countries mixed with people who are not Muslims.
Inbound means to visit on a trip from overseas, but it has become a word heard everywhere in Japan. The government launched a policy of 20 million foreign tourists visiting Japan to 40 million as an environment for accepting visitors to foreign visitors to Japan.
Towards the creation of a new country for "tourism developed countries", at the "Tourism Vision Conception Meeting to Support Japan in the Tomorrow" on March 30, the New Tourism Vision "Tourism Vision to Support Japan tomorrow" I formulated it.
Looking at the trend of the number of visitors to Japan since the start of the visit Japan project announced by the Japanese government tourist office, the number of foreign tourists visiting Japan, which was about 5.21 million in 2003, was about 240.4 million in 2016 It has increased by 5 times, and in 2017 the number has further increased to 28.69 million.
Approximately 70% of the population is called Muslims from the Asian region visiting Japanese visitors, accounting for 3/4 of the total, preparing for Muslim correspondence as a welcoming side is a challenge.
About 60% of the population is about 440,000 from Muslim Malaysia and 90% from about 90% Indonesia, about 3 times more than 5 years ago. Southeast Asia, which has many Muslims, is currently in the midst of economic growth, and some years later it is anticipated that it will exceed Chinese customers.
I would like to enrich Halal and to say that I want to go again, so that customers who visited Japan in inbound can entertain with Japanese charm.
