To most Tokyoites and other Japanese in many parts of Japan, the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr means not much. But to hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the country, it is the end of Ramadan and the holiest festival on the Muslim calendar.
This time as always, Eid Festival was held by Muslims living in various parts of the country. Yesterday morning (Friday), Eid prayers were held in mosques as well as in open areas to celebrate the end of Ramadan and start of the three-day Eid festivals.
Muslims organized Eid Greetings parties after the morning prayers in various mosques, university campuses and other premises. Many non-Muslim japanese also participated in these Eid parties.
