Restrictive diet! How will I cope in Tokyo?

Jump to last reply

I have gastritis and have been on medication and a restricted diet for about 6-7 weeks now. There has been a little improvement but I've experienced set backs when I've deviated from my very basic diet.

I eat 7 things! Steamed or sauteed white fish, chicken, cooked carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, egg and a little cheese.
I can tolerate a little butter or oil for cooking purposes but no fried food.

Every day I have soup made out of the vegetables and I eat scrambled egg with cheese or veg frittata or baked potato plus fish or chicken for dinner.
NO spices or seasoning apart from a little salt!
I think I should be able to tolerate white rice but I didn't have any success with it so far.

So my trip is 6 weeks away but I'm starting to panic about the food. I have tried to eat sushi but I presume I can't tolerate the vinegar in the rice. :(

Ack! I was so looking forward to the trip and the food!

So does anyone know what and where I'll be able to find food that I can eat in Tokyo?

I've shrunk my itinerary to make it easier to deal with my food issues as I feel that a less ambitious plan is called for.
We'll be staying 5 nights near Shinjuku at the Hyatt Regency, 2 nights in Hakone (Hyatt) then back to the PHyatt for 1 night before heading to Tokyo Disney for 2 nights.

I'm presuming I'll be able to find something I can eat at the hotels for breakfast and I hope that Shinjuku station really does have a myriad of food options including DULL, BASIC AND BLAND!!

Sigh, I had to cancel my trip to Hawaii last week as I really wasn't fit to travel but I hope I can go to Japan! Both trips were meant to be extra special pre and post birthday presents.

Thanks for any advice apart from the stay at home suggestions ;)
