Vegetarian cafe in Nagoya, JAPAN

You might be surprised but it is difficult to find a vegetarian restaurant in Japan.
We take lessons how important to eat a well-balanced diet at junior high and secondary school. So that we tend to eat well-balanced meal including meat and fish in spite of a relatively small amount.

However, a number of vegetarian is increasing at international level. For instance, in the Netherlands, vegetarian is fairly common. A study has shown that the number of vegetarians out of a population of nearly 16.5 million people increased from 560,000 in 2004 to 720,000 in 2006. 

One day…. coincidently, I found very interesting vegetarian cafe in my hometown.

The owner explained that they purchase a stock of the vegetables from Agrin mura where is organised farmer’s market in the same prefecture. In addition, they try to select organic, local produced or less chemical pesticide vegetables because many Japanese people started considering “Food safety” after the big earthquake in 2011.

“We want to purchase vegetables directly from organic or local farm, however, our sales, in other words,our demand of vegetables is fluctuate every week. So it’s a bit difficult.”
