Japan Cake is a blog focused on vegetarianism and veganism in Japan, written from the perspective of a 20-something lady from Southern California, currently in Tokyo. Here you will find a lot of restaurant reviews, vegan food items, and cooking posts all Japan-related.
This blog is written in English and Japanese and is intended for both readers. English is my native language but I actively try to improve my Japanese. I hope to write entertaining and useful content for vegetarians and non-Japanese English speakers living and/or traveling in Japan. The Japanese portions of this blog will hopefully be educational for any Japanese readers who are interested in a different perspective and/or vegetarianism. Subscribe and keep reading if you enjoy my posts!
I have been ovo-lacto vegetarian for most of my teenage years and decided to go fully vegan in March 2017. Being from California, where veganism and vegetarianism are well-known, and meat/dairy substitutes like Beyond Meat are commonplace in supermarkets, it’s been a huge adjustment being in Japan. On the other hand, it’s fun figuring out what to eat in the land of sushi and many meaty Japanese dishes (ramen and yakiniku, anyone?). I’m doing my best to keep living and eating the way I want to: plant-based, healthy, and as kind as I can be to the Earth.
