Shirosaki Machi 2-2-12, 2F (at East side of Oita Castle), Oita, Japan,

Owner is vegan and fluent in English. Menu is macrobiotic and organic, and all-vegan per report Mar 2015. Lunch is Japanese style comprising several small dishes, served from 12-2pm; other times it's a cafe. Brown rice and miso soup are staples. Uses seitan, no refined sugar. Barley tea, coffee, or tea offered with meal. One sweet option. Also sells a small selection of grocery items, some pottery, arts and crafts. The space has an earthy feel, with a small balcony that overlooks Oita castle. Holds meditation sessions and casual English conversation events some evenings.

First Review by JesseClark-Stone

happy little vegemite - Edit

As a vegan visiting Japan staying in a small city it was very nice to be sitting in this quaint cafe/restaurant. It has a nice outlook, and a very pleasant atmosphere thanks to the lovely Japanese, English speaking owner.

Pros: Healthy, Enjoyable, Lovely atmosphere

Cons: Set menu

An Oasis in Oita - Edit

Eating vegan in Japan can be a bit of a challenge as it is not really understood there. The owner of this quaint cafe causes you to forget all of this though with her wonderful cooking and great English conversation. There are some great teas and coffees to go with your meal and a not-too-sweet-but-altogether-satisfying dessert for afterwards as well. The view of Oita castle was great.

Pros: Delicious Food, Warm Atmosphere, Great View
