Hello I booked this experience for my husband’s birthday and we had a wonderful time on board. The communication regarding our dietary preferences was very well accommodated, our hostess was warm and explained each course beautifully to us. The food was simple and delicious where the ingredients were the true hero and paired very well with the wine we were having. The boat ride itself is short, and docked in an area which can give you good views. It was cold as we were here in march so we could not spend much time outside. I would recommend this experience for the hospitality, warmth and great efficiency of the team, the entire crew, chef and his team were so very wonderful and it is one of my top memories of my life. The only thing that I would share as suggestions or areas of improvements: For the amount that this excursion costs, I do wish the boat ride included more places to see and enjoy Tokyo bay a little more at night time. I feel being docked at one place only, not going to Odaiba we missed out. The boat ride itself can include more areas and show more places for the amount being paid. Other than that, it was the most fun experience I have had with my husband. Thank you to the wonderful team I will definable do this again Best wishes Reena K

Vegetarian Dining Experiences in Japan

In a country as convenient and efficient as Japan (with 24/7 convenience stores located on every street), you would think that Japan has it all! But if you're a vegetarian in Japan, you might be faced with the challenges of finding something you can eat at restaurants, shops, and even the ready-made food aisles of supermarkets. Bento boxes usually include fish or meat products, and even miso soup is usually made with a fish-based dashi broth. But while it is important to be aware that Japanese cuisine relies heavily on the fishing industry (as should be expected of an archipelago surrounded by abundant waters), it is by no means impossible to find vegetarian food in Japan.

Don’t worry about invisible meat or fish ingredients! Find out what’s for dinner (or lunch) by browsing these vegetarian dining experiences in Japan. Restaurants in Japan are becoming more and more accommodating to those with dietary restrictions like vegetarianism. So why not show your support for vegetarian restaurants in Japan and chefs who are striving to provide plant-based meals to guests from abroad! Join a vegetarian dining experience in Japan, right here on byFood.
