I've been in Japan for more than 3 weeks. I was in Fukuoka, Osaka and Kyoto. My last goal is Tokyo. I would like to know if anyone knows of any good places to eat vegetarian food in Tokyo, since up to this point, it's been fairly difficult finding places that offer a lot of variety when it comes being vegetarian. Since my Japanese skills are pretty limited, it's hard to always explain that I would like something with neither meat nor fish. If you know some places, please share, even if it's not in Tokyo!
There is an awesome chain of tofu restaurants called "Umenohana" - the one I got taken too was on the top floor of a department store in Funabashi near Tokyo, but there are others.
They have a web site: http://www.umenohana.co.jp/n_english/
But you might still need Google translate to assist.
Trust me. It's worth the effort! almost 6 years ago
