Good news for pescetarians: the Japanese cuisine is very pescetarian-friendly! Surrounded by water, Japan is the perfect place to indulge in the freshest seafood and fish. The traditional Japanese diet relies heavily on fish, as a main course, condiment, or soup stock. You’ll find beautiful fillets of salmon, okonomiyaki (cabbage pancakes) sprinkled with dried fish flakes, and light broths made from dried anchovies and sardines. And of course, sushi is suitable for the pescetarian diet, so you’ll have no problem if you’re pescetarian in Japan.
