Vegan food in Japan?

Jump to last reply

Does anyone have experience in finding vegan food (particularly breads and pastries - portable type stuff) in Japan (Kyoto, Hiroshima, Tokyo).

Our 3 year old, who will be coming with us on our trip to Japan in January is allergic to dairy and egg (thankfully not life-threatening, but unpleasant for her, and by extension, me if she is exposed). We've found here (NZ) that when we are out and about, it's sometime easier to ask if they have vegan cakes etc rather than get into allergy friendly stuff (we've had a few scares where they have told us something was dairy and egg free, but was actually dairy and gluten free - vegan seems simpler).

Are we likely to be able to pick up vegan bread easily? If I remember from my time in Japan years ago, the breads were all very sweet more like cakes, so I'm guessing a lot of them have milk or eggs added. Or am I going to have to load up our luggage with bread rolls before we get here so she can be guaranteed something to eat at breakfast time??

Thanks!
