Vegetarian Food in Tokyo 東京のベジタリアン料理のお店
T's Tantan vegan ramen
Komaki Shokudo - try their excellent soup!
The bustling city of Tokyo has just as many vegetarians restaurants as Kyoto. Here are four of the most vegetarian-friendly restaurants in the capital.
This is the best-known vegan restaurant in Tokyo. Located inside Tokyo station, it offers a wide range of typical Japanese dishes. The specialty here is ramen, a rare treat for vegetarians and vegans alike, who usually can't eat it because of broth made from pork and fish. An English menu is available, and you can easily eat for under ¥1,000.
