136-2 Iidacho (at Route 464, next to Iidacho 7-11), Narita, Japan, 286-0041

Serves meat, vegan options available. Opened Jan 2013, this coffee and food place is good for travelers staying near the main Tokyo airport in Narita. Lunch menu from 11.30-3pm is entirely vegan; breakfast offerings from 7-10am are limited but is also vegan friendly; has soy milk. No dinner. English menu and staff understand various dietary requirements. Bright, fresh atmosphere. Directions: A 20-minute walk from the central train stations, exit and walk past Mercure Hotel, and follow the road past a petrol station, then take the road that splits right and goes down and under the railway track, follow this road keeping the Keisei railway line on your left and after 10 minutes you'll come to a large intersection, and Easy Life is next to the 7-11 store. Or look for Iidacho 7-11 on Google maps and you will find it. Reported closed to HappyCow, Nov 2014.

Vegan food in Narita!! - Edit

This place is bright and clean and NON SMOKING!! It has an outdoor sitting area and a fresh atmosphere.

The staff were lovely and the owner of the cafe also works there.

My meal was delicious! I had a vegan Japanese style 'set lunch' for about 1000Yen ($10 US)which includes a drink. I 'upgraded' and paid 100Y($1) more to get a fresh organic carrot juice.

I would recommend this place to anybody! It was an easy and nice 15-20 min walk from central Narita.

Just some travel advice: If you are veg'n in Japan, it can be very difficult... Please be aware that most soupy dishes (miso, agedashi-tofu, the dipping sauce for tempura, soba/udon noodles and ramen) contain either fish (dashi) or pork stock, so avoid them!! For tempura you could ask for plain soy sauce instead. Many salads come topped with shavings of dried fish (katsuobushi). It may help to have someone write out your requirements clearly in Japanese for when you are out and about.

Vegetable gyoza, eda mame, vegetarian nabe/shabu shabu (hot pot), chilled zaru soba (served with plain soy sauce, not dashi), vegetarian cha han (fried rice)and ume ochazuke (green tea rice with plums) (ensure it's without dashi) are a couple of things that may help veg visitors to Japan to eat safely and happily... so long as you are specific about what you can and can't have!

Obviously not necessary though for Easy Life Cafe-they already know what you want! I love this place!

Pros: proper veg food, great atmosphere, great value
