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

One evening when we were walking around, we stumbled upon this restaurant called Mr. Farmer. It had green juice and vegan options so we went for it!
The water bar was one of the happiest things I have ever seen.
We weren’t that hungry, but when you spot an English speaking, vegan friendly restaurant in Japan, you jump on it! Luanne and I split a veggie burger and I had a green juice.
One thing you must do if you are in Tokyo is walk the streets in the evening and at night. It’s a whole different vibe than during the day. I have never felt more safe walking in a city at night than I did here. People are so polite and I never once got a creepy feeling or like I was in any sort of danger. It was weird to feel so safe and at ease in such a large city.
And now for the highlight of my time in Tokyo.
I found a jumpsuit that does NOT give me a camel toe! I bought that sucker and then proceeded to wear it every day for the rest of our trip.
Even in our small hotel room (which was actually big for Japanese standards), I managed to do my movement practice. It felt so good to roll out my body after so much walking.
We need to talk about Japanese cabs for a second. The cars are all from the ’70s and ’80s and they are ALL pristine. Not a scratch, rip, dent, stain, funky smell – it’s like they are brand new. And the drivers all wear a coat or vest, a tie AND white gloves. It’s like you are in a movie.
If you happen to know the deal with Japanese cabs, please share with me in the comments!
AND we’re off!
Ready to catch the bullet train (Shinkansen) to Kyoto in a train that goes 200+ mph (320 Km/h) and hovers on the tracks. More on that next week!
