VeganMoFo 2019: Bon On Shya Cafe, Koyasan

Koyasan is another of those places that appears on almost every Japanese itinerary I looked at – it’s a small town full of Buddhist temples which double up as tourist accommodation, way up a mountain. Much like our earlier trip … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Slices, Osaka

Wherever you go in the world, you can always without fail find an Irish pub. Osaka was the first place where we found a Canadian one though! It was quite an unexpected discovery, and I don’t really know what makes … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Cafe Aina, Osaka

We spent three nights in Osaka, and truthfully I’d say it was too long. The best thing we did in Osaka was actually get a train to a different town! It was a 20 minute train ride to nearby Ikoma, … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Yunri and Cafe Atl

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Happy Cow, and we relied heavily on the app for nearby vegan options while we were in Japan. Opening hours were quite strange and unpredictable, cities were huge, and we didn’t … Continue reading

We loved our stay in Kyoto so much. It was a lovely place to visit, and I’m already dreaming of a return trip – we were so tired that we didn’t have time to see all the temples we’d wanted … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Le Sel Organic

Kyoto is definitely the place to go for good vegan ramen – we had two of the best of our holiday there, firstly at Engine Ramen and then here at Le Sel Organic. This place was quite an unexpected find. … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Premarché Gelateria, Kyoto

I often look back fondly on my summer holiday a couple of years ago when Dr HH and I toured the north of Italy and ate gelato every day of our two week trip. Every day! I was well-prepared for … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Veggie Cafe, Kyoto

One thing I observed in Japan was that they weren’t always particularly creative at naming things. Pretty much every Indian restaurant we saw was called “Everest” or “Kathmandu” (not sure if we can technically blame the Japanese for that one, … Continue reading

VeganMoFo 2019: Engine Ramen, Kyoto

In Kyoto we found one of the best eateries of our trip, plus one of the best attractions, so it seems only right to cover them both together! Starting with the attraction: on a bit of a whim we found … Continue reading
