    This question is aimed at anyone from Japan or at any Muslim that has been to Japan before!

    My family and I might go to Japan this summer, but we aren't sure yet!

    Do they hate Muslims?? I wear the hijab so they'd definitely know that I'm a Muslim! I'm quite fond of the Japanese culture, language and OFCOURSE ANIME!!!
    But I don't want to end up going there disappointed!

    We want to visit Tokyo and Osaka!

    And...I am aware that there's a small % of Japanese Muslims living in Japan!

    They don't care about muslims so you're fine. However, they are not very fond of Chinese and Korean people.

    Generally if you're staying in larger cities like Tokyo, there'll be plenty of non Japanese, although you still might get a few stares. It's only if you go to smaller towns you'll get lots of stares.

    If you're respectful of Japanese culture and make a conscious effort to speak Japanese, you should be warmly welcomed

    I'm not Japanese either, but I've lived in East Asia before, and it's the same throughout the region. They're usually curious of foreigners but can be quite shy towards you if you're obviously foreign. However, they quickly warm to you if you make an effort to remember cultural norms and speak the language. I find the Japanese to be very friendly people, albeit a little shy

    In summer it's bloody boiling. I was in Japan this summer and it was regularly above 30ºC during the day. In winter it can get quite cold too, not much over 0ºC in the capital. The most agreeable weather occurs in Spring and Autumn

    I don't know about Osaka but Tokyo is probably around as rainy as England but it tends to be much sunnier, often even when its raining The winters are mild (probably around 0-5 degrees celsius) but the summers are hot and humid (probably around 25 degrees celsius). You will most likely get typhoons at least once a year

    Hopefully I helped
