Today there are mosques in every region of the country.It's hard to say whether or not the actions of the Metropolitan Police and the National Police Association are indicative of Japan's attitudes towards Muslims.For example, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government recently launched this guide book aimed at Muslim travelers: In November 2015, following the Paris attacks, a meme circulated on the English-language Internet about a list of supposed restrictions by Japan that effectively bans Muslim immigration. Muslims are allowed to visit, reside in and even become citizens in Japan.Leading politicians including Prime Minister Abe Shinzo have also stressed the importance of tolerance.However, the court also ruled that the intelligence-gathering was “necessary and inevitable” in order to protect Japan against the threat of international terrorism, despite constitutional protections for freedom of religion and equal protection under the law.In the 2014 court case related to the leak, the plaintiffs alleged: The Metropolitan Police Department and the National Police Agency had, as of 31 May, 2008, assessed and digitalized the personal information of ‘roughly 12,677 individuals’ equaling ‘roughly 89 percent of the 14,254 foreign nationals from Muslim countries registered in Tokyo,’ and later, by the time the Hokkaido Toya Lake summit convened in July of that year, had ‘profiled roughly 72,000 individuals from OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Conference) countries (assessment rate of 98 percent).’ Earlier in 2016 the group asked the Supreme Court of Japan to rule on the legality of the surveillance.Following the leak, 17 of the Muslims named in the documents sued the government and police in order to have the spying declared illegal.

The leak also showed that police had at times planted cameras inside mosques and used undercover agents to infiltrate Islamic nonprofit organizations and halal grocers and restaurants.

A court case challenging the constitutionality of this surveillance program was recently denied.

On May 31, 2016, Japan's Supreme Court dismissed the case questioning the legality of conducting surveillance on and profiling Muslims in Japan, even though surveillance based on religion or ethnicity is generally illegal under Japan's constitution, which enshrines the right to privacy, equal protection under the law, and freedom of religion.
