Sharifah Alhabshi

Abstract


The objective of this paper is to examine the possibility of Japan excelling in the halal industry, namely in the food business.  The Japanese has been known to be ethnically homogeneous. Apart from being ethnically homogeneous Japanese are also said to be “shukyo” that the word “religion” (when interpreted from a Christian-Islamic-Judaic perspective) does not translate well with Japanese traditions. Thus, saw among the very small percentage of Muslims living in Japan, they are very detached from the Japanese native community. As anticipated the study finds majority of Japanese population do not see halal as relevance to the Japanese for many of them have not heard of the “word” halal thus has no clue of what halal is all about.  Halal foods therefore are not Japanese main food choice. Nonetheless, should the people are expected to produce halal foods highest possibly they could because Japanese generally are obedience and ethical, thus when entrust with the production of halal food will abide by the rules and regulations stipulated.  However, to be a halal leader matters on halal management must be acceptable universally. Japan is still working on this issue by way of seeking partnership with key Muslim state. The progress of Japan in halal market has been slow for vision of the state has not been clearly translated or understood by the people. The success of Japan halal cannot rely on the government alone the people has to have equal share in promotion halal for Japan.
