Vegetarian Restaurants in Tokyo

by Erina

In a country where fish and meat are readily available at every turn, it can be overwhelmingly difficult to find restaurants that serve vegetarian dishes. Sadly, it's too often that I've spotted tourists eating onigiri (rice balls) from convenience stores. If you're a vegetarian, you'll no longer need to resort to convenient store meals. Below is a list of restaurants in Tokyo serving up delectable veggie-based dishes. Enjoy!
