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.
