A rare find

I got in touch with the staff via Facebook a day before my visit - they were not open for dining in but they've offered to prepare a vegan bento box for pick up at an agreed time.

The food was excellent and very well presented.

A rare find - especially given lack of other vegan options around.

Great food in a peaceful setting

This is a lovely Japanese-style eatery tucked away in a quiet village.

When I went there was only 1 veggie option and it was simple, yet tasty and filling.

Definitely a great place to stop by and unwind after exploring beautiful Teshima.

Note: Visited in November 2018.

Pros: Beautiful, peaceful setting, Tasty and filling food, Wasn't busy at all when I went

Cons: Only 1 option - but it's a good one, regardless

Perfect vegan meal!

After a long day of bike riding on Teshima, this vegan rice meal is absolutely perfect! All the portions were unique and delicious, and worked so well together. The brown rice is so delicious and fluffy, and the tofu bites were insanely good. Traditional Japanese vegan meals are always so amazing, so I can't recommend this restaurant enough!
There is a mix of traditional tatami seats or normal couch seats if you prefer.

Pros: AMAZING vegan meal, quite affordable, relaxing atmosphere

Nice place for lunch

Nice, quiet café with a beautiful garden, close to Teshima Art Museum (5-10 minutes by bike) and many other works of art. There was only one dish on the menu but it was vegan and pretty tasty, consisting of different vegetables, some tofu, rice and a basic soup/broth.
