Vegan Restaurants in Kyoto

"Kyo-ryori" is the local cuisine of Kyoto Prefecture, known for using mainly "Kyo-yasai," which are locally-grown vegetables and produce from Kyoto, Japan. This means that with a heavy focus on the harvest of regional ingredients, vegan restaurants in Kyoto are increasingly easy to come by among the range of restaurants in Kyoto. However, it can be challenging for vegan travelers in Kyoto to navigate menus and avoid meat and animal products.

The traditional roots of Japanese food are founded on quality ingredients with subtle flavors and textures. Vegans do not have to miss out on Japanese cuisine in Kyoto, as a range of specialty restaurants offer plenty of exquisite plant-based Japanese cuisine options. In fact, the city is just spoilt by many secret (as well as not-so secret) vegan and vegetarian restaurants!

Hidden down the tiny alleyways of Kyoto’s gridded streets, or up the stairs of a backstreet building, you never really know what kind of restaurant you will find, some with vegan dining experiences. But rest assured, there are vegan restaurants in Kyoto delivering quality plant-based dishes, packed with umami flavor, all without the use of animal products.
