VeganMoFo 2019: Flowers, Miyajima

The floating gate at Mijayima ranks quite highly among the top sights in Japan, and we were pleased to see that it was a very manageable day trip from Hiroshima. We took the train and ferry, and there it was … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Parco alla Pace, Hiroshima

Hiroshima was a very strange place to visit. It’s uncomfortable to be a tourist in a city that was completely destroyed in the worst way imaginable. It’s hard to segue from talking about that history to fun ruminations about food, … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Yappenachi, Hiroshima

Okonomiyaki is one of the Japanese specialities that we’d suspected would pass us by, due to the fact that it’s a pancake and unlikely to be veganised. Dr HH was excited to try it while we were in Osaka, but … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Convenience Store Snacks of Japan

VeganMoFo 2019: Curry House CoCo Ichibanya, Okayama

One of the great things about the UK is that a lot of the chain restaurants now have vegan options on the menu, and good ones at that. Our research pointed us towards one Japanese chain with a similar set … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Merci Moncher, Okayama

Travelling light makes everything so much easier. Wherever Dr HH and I are going, and for however many nights, we always pack the same amount: a regular, day backpack that will fit under the seat in front on a flight. … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Eko-in, Koyasan
