Plant Based Eating in Tokyo, Japan: a Culinary Adventure in the Far East

The side streets were possibly my favorite part of Tokyo. You never know what you will find. The side streets in the Harajuku area were particularly lovely. You can only explore the side streets by foot, so put on some walking shoes and get ready for your senses to be delighted.
After a long trek to get here, I found a healthy grocery store that was located smack dab in the middle of a department store (Keio department store in Shinjuku). I was on the hunt for soy milk so I could have some cereal in the morning. Most everything in this little shop was in Japanese so stocking up on different things was off the table because I had no idea what anything was.
I have never been so excited to see a little carton of almond milk in all of my life!
On the way back to our hotel, we walked by this little place that had fresh fruit and veggies outside. I doubt anything was organic but I didn’t care. It was fresh fruits and veggies – enough to make me happy.
I bought a peach, some carrots, a cucumber and an apple. I was set. When you’re traveling, pick fresh fruits and veggies that you can wash and eat without having to cook. It’s a fast way to get some fiber and nutrients into your system.
The use of plastic was over the top.
