This is Japan’s biggest plant-based festival.
Tokyo, and Japan, have been known as not having the best restaurants and food options for vegans and vegetarians. But times are changing and events like the Vegan Gourmet Festival are making it easier to eat meat-free.
It is held five times a year across Nagoya, Tokyo, and Kyoto. In Tokyo, it is held both in summer and autumn.
Food stalls will not use any animal products, including fish, egg, meat, dairy products, and honey, and will have labels displaying all ingredients used (though only in Japanese).Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
