Where do you get good Vegetarian Food in Tokyo?

I am looking for hotels or restaurants that serve good Vegetarian Food i.e. food without meat, seafood or fish. I do not mind eating cheese or other dairy products. BTW, by good vegetarian food, I mean cooked food items and not just salad. I know Indian Restaurants do have vegetarian options, but I am looking for other cuisines.

    Not really an expert in this field, but I've been to this place in Kinshicho a couple of times and quite enjoyed it. It's near the station (sobu and hanzomon lines). Restaurant name: It's Vegetable. http://itsvegetable.com/

    I don't live in the area but I'd check out any restaurants run by Buddhist temples as they are usually vegetarian and not bad. There must be a bunch of options - maybe search 'ベジタリアンレストラン' plus the name of the district.

    google searching gives a ton of places. https://www.timeout.com/tokyo/restaurants/tokyo-top-vegetarian-restaurants this list looks like a pretty good start! Many cafes also have one vegetarian option on the menu if you cant find restaurants specifically for vegetarians. Vegan is harder to find though. There are also marcobiotic places that double as vegetarian friendly.

    If you're craving for ramen, there's a vegan ramen in Jiyuu no gaoka in Tokyo!

    If you read Japanese, I often find books on the topic are one of the best ways to research options. There are a few books on Amazon and in Tsutaya. I have noticed that sometimes they use the term "veggy" rather than vegetarian, so it might be the same for online searches.

    Hmmm. I'd take a look at the AinSoph franchise. Most of their franchise is vegan. They've got a vegan burger bar in Shinjuku. There's several other restaurants by their company too. Also check out DevaDeva Cafe, and Pure Cafe.

    I've had a few vegetarian and vegan friends come and visit me in Tokyo - a site that helped us massively with finding options to eat out was https://www.happycow.net/asia/japan/tokyo/ - I hope it helps you too with finding some good options! I feel like more and more, there are vegetarian and vegan choices popping up over the city! :)

    I can't recommend the Happy Cow website / app highly enough! Great collection of vegetarian restaurants and you can search by location.

    Hello Ram, ofc there are many Indian restaurants in and around Tokyo for veg or non-veg food. My favorites are Andhra Kitchen, Nirvanam, and Dhaba India. But apart from Indian cuisine, you can customize in Chinese or Italian restaurants. I have seen a couple of my vegetarian friends request for meat/fish free pasta, rice, gyoza or pizza. Probably you may try something like that. Hope it helps!

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.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
