The interest in vegetarianism and the plant-based lifestyle has been rising globally, due to ethical and environmental reasons, and Japan is no exception. While Japan has a historically fish-based diet, in recent years the Japanese food scene has been making more attempts to be accommodating of other diets, especially in Tokyo. Vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Tokyo are now on the upswing, and there are more and more vegetarian food tours in Japan where people can enjoy their favorite plant-based Japanese foods.
While many of these tours are located in Tokyo, there are also vegetarian food tours in Kyoto and plant-based food tours in Osaka in addition to Hiroshima and other areas across Japan. The variety of experiences include vegetarian street food tours, tea ceremony experiences, and farm tours. During these vegetarian food tours in Japan, you’ll be accompanied by a local guide who will answer your questions about Japanese cuisine, culture, and history. You’ll meet both locals and foreign visitors to Japan, and end the tour with a full stomach and warm memories.
