About the halal menu

Kyoritsu Maintenance thoroughly considered guests’ requests, the selection of ingredients and how to secure suppliers of ingredients and train staffers in introducing the halal menu. Since Kyoritsu Maintenance regards halal diet not as special meals but as those that all guests can enjoy, the company is sure that the renewed menu can satisfy not only guests from overseas including Muslims but also Japanese guests.

Kyoritsu Maintenance has modified “Yonakisoba” noodle, which enjoys high popularity among dormy inn customers from overseas as a late-night snack, to conform to halal rules (*2). In doing so, it carefully selected ingredients to maintain the original taste of the food. The company started serving the modified “Yonakisoba” noodle for a late-night snack and beef sukiyaki and cream stew for breakfast. Kyoritsu Maintenance is also considering expanding its menu.

(*2) "Yonakisoba" noodle that conforms to halal dietary rules is served only at this particular facility (as of July 30).

Renovation of the hotel

A prayer room has been set up on the 10th floor to help Muslim guests comfortably stay in Japan in not only meals but also other aspects.

Conditions for the three-star halal certification (eatery category):

-- All food to be served must meet halal dietary rules;

-- Using pork and pork-derived ingredients or serving food containing these ingredients is strictly prohibited; and

-- Alcoholic beverages must not be served.
