I’m going to Japan, and I swear, there’s NOTHING there that’s vegan X(
Vegetables and fruits (and even rice!) are super-expensive, I’m allergic to nuts, all bread has some sort of dairy/eggs in it (sometimes gelatin! LOLwat?), there are no such things as veggie burgers around, and they have fish in everything!!
Last time I went there, all I lived off was sugary traditional japanese treats (because they were the cheapest). Don’t want to do that again.
I researched and there’s a restaurant near by, but it’s not close enough for me to go there.
And they are NOT open-minded about vegans, at all. So do you have a brilliant idea or two?

How long are you going to be there? If it’s not for too long of a time, and depending on what Japan’s laws about bringing food into the country, you could pack some luna bars and other stuff of that sort. Yeah, they are a touch pricey, but it would be for a special occasion, and it’s better, if only slightly, than eating junk food. Your other option is to save all the money you possibly can before you go and buy real food for yourself while your there.
Sorry if that wasn’t very helpful, I’ve only been to Germany and for some bizarre reason, Berlin is like a vegan haven, so I didn’t have many problems
Are you kidding?!
Didn’t you know Japan is one of the world’s largest soy producers and that it is where Tofu comes from?
Try Tofu and bean sprout dishes (without peanuts) and you will be fine.
Also try vegetable sushi, it is delish!
Me = jealous. I would loooove to go to Japan!
I would have imagined there would be a lot of veggie options over there though, as a large number of people are Buddhist. (The main religions are Shintoism and Buddhism, I’m not sure about diets in Shinto).
