Time and again I have said that vegans and vegetarians would probably have their happiest times in Japan, at least for gastronomes, because this country, and especially Shizuoka with its mild weather and abundance of vegetables all year round, can provide all ingredients all year round whose traceability is easy to prove!


The above o-tooshi/お通し/is not vegetarian, but you aforementioned priorities will ensure it is!

There are many places in Shizuoka City and Prefecture offering alternatives to their omnivorous dishes for vegans and vegetarians who still want to enjoy their outing with friends with different priorities.
One such place, and arguably the best at it, is Yasaitei in Tokiwa Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
And here is one recommendation:


Vegetable sashimi plate!
The above is the basic one, but you certainly may order for a bigger variety!


View for the other side!


Ice plant and celery!

One thing all these vegetables have in common is that they are super fresh, crunchy, juicy and so tasty!


Tomatoes and daikon!


Japanese cucumber!


Onion and shiso/perilla leaf!


Simple but exquisite dressing made with higher-class sesame oil, rock salt and miso paste!


For friends who like seafood: cod roe steamed and marinated in rice vinegar!

  1. I recently made a visit to one of such vegetarian sashimi resaturant and I have to admit that it was beyond my expectations with the range of dishes possible with just fresh veges. I ended up with over 10+ dishes order and definitely a refreshing experience with my family. It may not be what I usually go for but it sure was memorable!
