vegetarian-vegan Japanese foods.

Postby joshdefreitas_501057 » August 11th, 2014 9:48 pm

Hey guys, so i plan on going to japan with my family in the future, but the thing is that everybody of our family is vegetarian and i'm trying to become vegan, so it's a problem to find good food for us no matter where we go. That being said do any of you guys have suggestions of a good dishes in the Japanese culinary that are meat free? I would really like to try the famous Japanese culinary but i'm not sure what i can eat.

Last time I visited Japan I stayed in a Buddhist temple where the food served was fully vegan (breakfast and dinner were included in the accommodation), and seriously delicious. I think this style of cooking is called shojin ryori (精進料理). Maybe you could look for places to stay and eat and serve vegan food in the Buddhist tradition?

joshdefreitas さん、becciwhitton5094 さん、

精進料理 should be good.
However, many Japanese people are not visitation these days so it should be hard to find visitation restaurant in towns… :(
