Making Japanese curry

I am trying to make Japanese curry at home. Confused with so many varieties in the market. I want something that has no beef to it. Any suggestions?

    I am confident that the one I use has no beef as I once asked in the sales girl in the store. But once you find this in the store ask to reconfirm.

    They usually refer to the different levels of spiciness. You might want to check the back in the ingredients if it has anything with 牛肉 written on it, as asking them "is there beef in this?" may be mistaken as "does this package include the delicious ingredients as shown in the picture?"

    I just took a look at the ingredients and the only meat product it has is gelatin.

    Like the other answers said, just look for the beef kanji (or meat kanji if you're looking for a totally vegetarian option). I think most curry that is just the blocks of roux doesn't have meat in it, but some of the instant types in pouches that you just heat up do.

    You might need to try iHerb for a 100% vegetation option, or an international food store. Some large department stores also have a vegetarian range. Many of the roux cubes have reduced meat fats, like stock cubes, so if you are strictly trying to avoid beef you'll need to check the ingredients list carefully.

    Yes golden curry is a good choice. Its just a little spicy if you have a small child.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
