Nagano train station , Nagano, Japan

Serves meat, vegan options available. Take away counter in the Midori department store (the sub-store called Oraho, 2F), part of the shopping malls in Nagano central train station. Sells oyaki, Nagano's specialty dumplings made of buckwheat and filled with many types of vegetables. Many are vegan suitable. Note: kitchen may stop serving 30-60 minutes prior to closing, check ahead.

right where it was supposed to be - Edit

Irohado Oyaki stall, Friday, 30/6/2017 1pm
This was just inside the Midori department store 2nd floor, accessed from the pedestrian overbridge. Staff very friendly and helpful and heated up the Oyaki so we could it it there in the foodcourt seating area. They pointed out which ones we could eat and gave us an English language printed explanation of Oyaki. We had mixed vegetable, pumpkin, bunashimeiji (mushroom) and adzuki bean filled ones and all were great. There were two other siilar stalls adjacent to Irahado and we had eggplant, thistle and plain and spicy nozawana-filled ones from there. all were good too. These are quite filling and good value. Will probably be having more given limited vegan options that we know of in Nagano.

Pros: easy to find, friendly and helpful, tasty, filling food at good price

Great spot to grab a delicious local delicacy. The English chart with ingredients was very helpful to work out which ones were vegan friendly! We tried the pumpkin, the red bean, the greens and the eggplant ones. Sooo yum!

Pros: cheap, convenient , local delicacy

Oyaki-a Nagano specialty - Edit

We traveled to Nagano and were fortunate to find this small outlet in the Midori/Oraho department store, right at the Nagano train station. Oyaki are buckwheat dumplings filled mostly with vegetables, and most of them are vegan. One can find them in many places, but Irohado's dumplings are very tasty and the friendly counter ladies understood "vegan", also had a small information sheet in English with info about oyaki, names of dumplings (based on their fillings, such as mixed vegetables, daikon, pumpkin, azuki bean, thistle, mushroom, nozawana greens, scallions), calorie content and photos of the dumplings. Very conveniently situated and saved our vegan diet in Nagano (since some restaurants we found on the internet had closed...).

Pros: inexpensive, yummy, easy access from Nagano train station

Cons: not a sit-down restaurant
