proper vego food in japan -love this place!

This place is great! Really easy to find in central narita and the owner/staff were lovely and spoke English - also has an English menu. i find it is EXTREMELY difficult to eat vego in japan - and i speak the language- so having a place like this in the town closest to the New Tokyo (ie the main) International Airport is good news indeed! I got the Japanese lunch set and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is really nice too. Don't judge them for not being 100% vego-it is mostly vego and certainly has the right spirit, but I think it is a tough market to crack and they are doing the best they can. most japanese food is LOADED with msg and extracts of one animal or another. this meal was satisfying but healthy and no msg sleeplessness after. i loved it - great value for money and even better, they sell beer!!
if you are just transitting for a few hours, you can take either the JR or Keisei train from the airport to narita. from either station, it is a 5 minute walk and easy to find. It is on the road that leads to the Narita-san temple (a very beautiful one with gorgeous gardens - well worth a visit-don't be scared and hang out a the airport -if you have time, it is pretty simple!) I will upload a pic to help you.
(please note - the maximum rating allowed for a non veg restaurant is 4 cows - i would give it 5 under the circumstances, but cannot!)
