However, it continues to function as mosque today. It is located in theKitano-choforeign district of Kobe.

The mosque is located in one of Kobe's best-known tourist areas, which features many old western style buildings.

The mosque was built in traditional Indian style by the Czech architect Jan Josef Švagr (1885–1969), the architect of a number of Western religious buildings throughout Japan.
