Japanese Vegetarian


Being a vegetarian in Japan can be slightly hard to do since a lot of the food is seafood based. However, there are quite a few delicious vegetarian friendly dishes that one can get. A hot spot for vegetarian friendly cuisine can be found in Kyoto. Many of the temples serve just vegetarian styled foods, but the downside of eating at a temple is the cost can run up to $40 per person.

Some traditional meals that are vegetarian friendly with lots of flavor are shown below.
