Vegetarian Restaurants in Tokyo

The amazing quality of Japanese food at vegetarian restaurants in Tokyo is not surprising considering the size of the city and its diverse culinary scene. Meat-free meals in this mega metropolis are increasingly easy to come by at both regular and specialty vegetarian restaurants in Tokyo. You can book one of the best vegetarian dining experiences in Tokyo on byFood for an unforgettable vegetarian meal on your next trip to Tokyo. You can even visit a few different vegetarian restaurants in Tokyo as you feast on sweet treats in Harajuku, or learn about traditional wagashi (that just happen to be vegan) during a vegetarian food tour. These sweets traditionally do not use animal products!

Tokyo vegetarian restaurants are scattered throughout the city, boasting food that’s so packed with umami flavor that meat-eaters might never know that they don’t contain meat! You will be surprised at how flavorsome vegetarian Japanese food can be, where a lot of the Japanese diet still relies on vegetarian-friendly ingredients like rice, seaweed, and vegetables. In fact, meat consumption has only risen since 1872, as before the Meiji Restoration, eating meat in Japan was banned in conjunction with the arrival of Buddhism.

Since modern times, Japanese diets have welcomed the consumption of meat, which was no longer taboo. But now, there are plenty of delicious vegetarian options readily available as well as vegan restaurants in Tokyo offering plant-based options as well. Delicious vegetarian Japanese food can be best enjoyed at one of Tokyo's diverse vegetarian restaurants, throughout pockets of the glittering city.
