Tokyo Vegan Guide: Best Vegan Eats in Tokyo

I have been living in Japan for 2 years now and have successfully been vegan the whole time, so if you’re wondering if it’s possible to be vegan in Tokyo…I hope that answers your question! Throughout these two years, I have eaten at MANY different vegan restaurants…some of which I loved and some of which I didn’t. Tokyo is absolutely full of vegan food if you’re willing to search! From vegan western food, to vegan Japanese food, Tokyo has it all! To save you going to a restaurant you may not enjoy and to allow you to eat the very BEST vegan food in Tokyo, I’m writing this article to give you a list of my personal favorite places to eat in Tokyo! If you’re a vegan and you’re traveling to Japan soon…make sure to keep scrolling to see where to eat!

1. T’s Tan Tan, Tokyo Station (Vegan Restaurant)

T’s Tan Tan had to be the first one on my list because it may be my favorite vegan restaurant in Tokyo! T’s Tan Tan is a ramen shop located in Tokyo Station. EVERYTHING on the menu is vegan and there are tons of types of ramen (my personal favorite is the Shouyu Ramen). The restaurant also sells side dishes such as rice, gyoza, fried “chicken” and curry!

Everyone who’s eaten at this restaurant with me have said it’s some of the best ramen they’ve ever had, even people who aren’t vegan!! On top of it being super tasty, the price is very reasonable as well. Depending on which ramen you choose, the price varies from 700yen to 1000yen. If you’re in Tokyo looking for authentic Japanese vegan food…you HAVE to go to T’s Tan Tan!!

Note: Although the main restaurant is located in Tokyo Station, a new T’s Tan Tan has opened up at Narita Terminal 2!

2. Katsumidori Sushi, Shibuya (Vegan Options)

Avocado Nigiri, Pickle rolls and eggplant nigiri.

Katsumidori Sushi is a conveyor belt sushi restaurant that is located in Shibuya. Unfortunately, it is not all vegan but they do sell some vegan options (more than regular conveyor belt sushi restaurants). Another good point about the restaurant is that it is super cheap and super English friendly!

Some of their vegan options include: Avocado Nigiri, Cucumber Roll, Kampyo Roll, Pickled Radish Roll, Corn Nigiri (get without mayonnaise). If you’re not sure, the staff are happy to help you know which options are vegan so make sure you ask.
The restaurant does get extremely busy so if you want to eat here, make sure to avoid going at peak times!

If you’re looking to eat at a more high-end restaurant in Tokyo, you have to go to AIN SOPH. Ginza. Ain Soph own many vegan restaurants throughout Japan with their most famous one being Ripple Burger. Their food is some of the best vegan food in Tokyo and each restaurant has a different vibe. Their Ginza store is very high-end and sells amazing unique dishes, such as their vegan Spanish omelette!

Due to it being quite a high-end restaurant, however, their prices are quite high and dishes are quite small so if you’re traveling on a budget i’d recommend giving this one a pass. But if you want to eat somewhere special in Tokyo, I’d highly recommend going here!

The food at CORI is honestly so tasty and you can tell they put a lot of thought and effort into their dishes, my personal favorite dish is the teriyaki tofu burger.

The restaurant is located slightly out of central Tokyo, but the food is worth the journey. It’s also nice to have a reason to go and explore other parts of Tokyo. So if you have the time, definitely check this restaurant out!

It’s also a great place to stop off if you’re in a rush as you can eat it super quickly.
