Amazing experience. Loved the food, the tinkatsu was so crunchy and flaky, the Mc was very knowledgeable and gave great and funny incite to sumo wrestling. The sumotōri were great as well, they were interactive and funny. We lived the demonstration and all the antics. Would highly recommend to families. Our teen kids loved it!

My favorite part of my entire Japan trip! My friends and I decided to splurge with this experience and it did not disappoint. Our chef was great, spoke a decent amount of English, and of course prepared the best sushi I have ever tried. The service within all employees was also on par. We got our experience to include sake and tried around 4 to 5 different sakes. They keep refilling your drink so in total we had about 10 glasses of sake. I recommend this no matter what.

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.
