Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.

    Eating vegetarian/vegan is really tough in Japan... Even if something is advertised as such, they may still use animal-based broths or even include a meat sauce... Have you tried using Happy Cow? I did a search for you (I hope this link works!): https://www.happycow.net/searchmap?location=Fuchu,%20Japan&vegan=true&vegetarian=true&vegfriendly=true&bakery=true&bnb=true&catering=true&delivery=true&farmers=true&health=true&organization=true&other=true&vegshop=true&term=&ft=&radius=15&metric=km&limit=81&order=default&lat=35.669&lng=139.478 I'm never on that side of Tokyo so I haven't tried any of the restaurants personally, but you can read reviews from other vegetarians/vegans and check out what's recommended on the menu!

    As hellonihon said, happy cow is an awesome resource as is Vegewel (https://vegewel.com/) I have a vegan family member who has been visiting recently, but we were in the center of Tokyo so I am not 100% sure if there's much in the suburbs. The hardest thing here especially with vegan eats is the likelihood of dashi infiltrating everything!!

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)
