Being Vegan/Vegetarian in Tokyo, Japan

Hey everyone!

I know this isn’t going to be the video for everyone, but I found it to be really important that I make this video for people who are wanting to come to Japan and are worried about their vegetarian or vegan diet.
You can also take this as a go ahead for asking any friends or family to go visit as well if they have these problems, so hope everyone can at least get something out of it.

Also, I need to apologize for this video being slightly unfocused. I noticed it in editing and is kind of driving me crazy, but it’s too long a video to re-film.

Here’s all the information I have, now remember, this is just information that my roommate and I have as of June, 2016 but I have a feeling that Tokyo will be getting nothing but more vegan friendly as the olympics get closer and Tokyo prepares for a more international crowd. If I find out any new info, I’ll try to keep this list updated as much as possible, but since I’m leaving soon, I don’t know if I’ll be able to do that or not.

    I've stopped being vegan, but I'm concerned for my mom, who's vegan, so I check spots to eat with her while in japan.

    DO you have an instagram or twitter? It'd be nice to be able to see the places you guys visit or food you eat. For that visiual references! Your vid was really informative, plus it fun to see we watch the same channels. Hope you'll be uploading more often 😉
