Admittedly, Japan isn’t the most vegan-friendly country in the world. Japanese food is often centered around fish and seafood products, and many Japanese people are not aware of diets like veganism and vegetarianism. It can be quite a challenge to find vegan options in Japan, outside of areas like Tokyo. In big urban areas, a few vegan restaurants have been emerging, but many of them mainly serve Western-style cuisine rather than Japanese fare. Thankfully, there is a tradition of plant-based eating in Japan, with cuisines such as Shojin Ryori, the Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, still alive today.
