Vegetarian Tokyo Map: Restaurant Guide for Locals & Travellers

For those vegan and vegetarian friends travelling in Japan, is a tricky place! Many dishes have lots of vegetable options, but have hidden fish stock or ingredients.

This post provides some restaurants for Tokyo close to the main areas and attractions. I also have a post on useful vocabulary and safe dishes for vegetarians and vegans.

Please note that the map is a work in progress, and some shops in the map are not on the list and vice versa. Shout out to the awesome Redditors who contributed to the map. Please get in touch if you have places you love.

Vegetarian Restaurant List

Many of these places are also vegan. You can check the menu first. If you are at an Indian restaurant, some may serve the egg-contained naan bread. This is a consolidation of various lists, and focus on areas that travellers often visit. The areas in bold have links to their Google map location.

Note: The list below and the map do not necessarily correspond. The map has been updated since July 2016.
