We are traveling to Tokyo and Kyoto in March with our son who is allergic to eggs and nuts. I do know that the tempura batter has eggs in it, but are there any other dishes that have eggs or nuts? Do noodles contain eggs? What can be considered safe foods (that is, devoid of eggs and nuts) if we find ourselves in a place where English isn't spoken well?
And are Japanese restaurants knowledgable about food allergies? Similar to restaurants in America, is it an acceptable practice in Japan to ask the waiter/server to check with the chef on the ingredients in the food items?
