For a great amount of Muslim Tourist that come to Japan, they face a large problem when it comes to finding products that are Halal when coming to Japan. With 24% of the world’s population being Muslim, it means that a large amount of potential visitors are hindered on products that they can use when coming. After talking to a variety of Muslims, we found that one of the biggest difficulties they face is the search for Halal Friendly amenities. We want to be able to make their stay in Japan as enjoyable as possible by letting them not have to worry about the products that they use while they are here. With AkillFeel they can be sure that the products that they use are completely alcohol-free. We hope that you can help us to create these products that will allow for a large amount of people to experience and enjoy Japan!

Hey all!
I'm Katsutoshi Nakamura of gram nine Co. Ltd., . We focus normally on bringing foreign cosmetics into Japan from abroad.

With this, I’ve had a large amount of experience dealing with bringing these types of products into Japan, and in the process I’ve created a lot of connections in this area of business. During this time, I hope that I’ve helped not just Japanese people, but also foreigners be able to try out new products.

There are a vast multitude of products that have been imported into Japan for not only Japanese people but also for foreigners.

However, there are many companies that focus and appeal to a large percent of the market, and I want to help those that come to Japan that haven’t been able to have their voice heard.

We brought together these voices and looked to making a product that would fit their needs.

Japan has been the focus of a large inbound influx, with visitors from outside the normal countries coming to check out this amazing country.
For the most part, Japan is well equipped to deal with these guests, apart from one section, the Muslim visitors that come. As well as this, those that come to live here are also affected.

(※Global Muslim Travel Index 2017:GMTI2017
When looking at countries that Muslims travel to, Japan has some of the lowest scores and ranks for ease of stay and accommodation of guests that are Muslim.

1 Malaysia(Score 82.5)
2 United Arab Emirates(Score 76.9)

32 Japan(Score 52.8)

Japan is slowly becoming better in regards to food that are certified Halal, making it safe for practicing Muslims to eat.

But for Muslims, Halal doesn’t stop at just food. For Muslims to be able to come to Japan, to enjoy and learn about our amazing traditions and culture, they need products so that they can stay here.

When you travel, you think about not just the food you can eat, but also products you can use at hotels and so on. Muslim visitors are the same.

They look for places that have shampoo, conditioner, and cleansers that are also made with Halal processes in mind.

We found in our research, that many decide to bring goods from home in order to be able to survive as they feel that they can’t count on their accommodations to have suitable products. We also found that there is a big gap in the amount of companies that look to bring products in and the number of Muslim travellers incoming.

In Arabic, Halal means “Permitted” or “Allowed”. Opposite to this is Haram, which means “Forbidden”.
What is Haram and Halal is described in the Qur’an, which Muslims treat as their holy book, and where they take their teachings from.
Therefore when something is marked as Halal, they feel safe in using or eating it, without going against their teachings.
In order to help them when it comes to their travel I wish to be able to provide something that is certified Halal, something that will give them ease of mind.



In order for something to be certified as Halal, the products need to be free of chemicals, alcohol or heavy metals, as well as free of any products that might be derived from pigs. While this certification is extremely strict, it is so that it can be used by a wide range of practicing Muslims.

After forming this alliance with this amazing Indian factory that has been Halal certified, we started looking at creating products that are usable by Muslims!

Originally, we looked at just importing goods that were already created, but after thinking hard about it, we thought about a whole new redesign, by first asking Muslims for their advice and what their needs were and then creating a product from scratch. By doing so we could clearly convey our message instead of just re-purposing a different one.

From their AkillFeel was born!

AkillFeel is a product that is completely Halal Certified, that has been created with no chemicals, alcohol, or heavy metals, as well as no pig-derived products. It is completely made with plant extracts!

This makes the product extremely safe for those that are practicing Muslims, as well being kind and gentle on the skin! This way, everyone not just Muslims can come to Japan and use these products safely. As well as this, Japanese people can also use these products!

Thoughts from people that have used the products

I was able to use these products while on a stay in Japan, after having been sent a sample of them. My first impression of them was how much safer I felt using a product that was halal certified!
While I’m not as strict as when it comes to food, sometimes it can’t be helped when products enter the mouth or touch our skin, and I try to be careful about this.
I was extremely grateful that it isn’t made with alcohol. There are a few products that I’ve not used but the ones I’ve used so far have been perfect! I look forward to using the ones I’ve not yet.
Overall I think the Facial Soap is the one I liked best!

I had some problems when it came to using products that are normally focused on Japanese people using them, but I was fine using this product!
The shower gel was especially good, with it feeling nice on the skin and it smelt lovely. I had no problems using it on my skin and no reactions. After realising this I could use it as a make up remover as well. Compared to other products sold in Japan, it was more effective and after use, my skin felt extremely soft and smooth!

gram nine Co. Ltd,. currently has a close tie to a factory in India that is Halal certified.

It is through this factory, that we began to hear the first plights of Muslims when it came to travel in Japan. We learnt of the Islam way of life, of products that Muslims must use and aren’t allowed to use and how it’s difficult to find these in a vast majority of countries around the world, especially those that don’t have a large Muslim population.

So we felt that before it becomes the norm, it’s a great chance to be able to start promoting to companies around Japan.

After being able to procure Muslim-safe, Halal-certified amenities, we hope to approach hotels, hostels, and places of accommodation all over Japan, hopefully being able to help these establishments become more knowledgeable about the problems that Muslims face in Japan.
We foresee that Japan will become even more popular in the future, meaning that places like this will need to become more accommodating for people of all different faiths and religions.
There is already a feeling of diversification in Japan, but it is not fast enough. The core of this project is to help funnel help into the areas that are lacking to support these visitors.
I really think we can make a difference, to make it possible to change the way many companies think when it comes to including Halal certified products in their establishments, and in making them more knowledgeable. Japan, especially the youth, is becoming more accepting of foreign cultures, and are welcoming of visitors from all over the world. It is this acceptance that I want to help spread all over the nation. I think that AkillFeel can truly help in this endeavor.
With these ideals in mind, I hope that you can help us make an amazing product that is not good just for Muslims, but also safe for everyone to use become available!
