Serves meat, vegan options available. 西京区嵐山西一川町1-8 is located a few minutes walk from Togetsukyo bridge, against the backdrop of Mt. Arashiyama. It's convenient for those using the Arashiyama Hankyu station, which is around the corner. Offers healthy Japanese lunch set plates and sweets, as well as a dinner menu. There is a local vegetable-based lunch set as well as a curry, a pasta and a taco rice set, all of which are vegan. The dinner set allows you to choose a main dish from a list, on which there are vegan options. The miso soup is vegan. There is an English menu, and the staff understand what "vegan ryori" is. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From 3-5pm it's cafe only. Las orders 7pm. Note: In Japan kitchens often stop serving 30-60 minutes before closing time. Call ahead to confirm. Open Mon 10:30am-8:00pm, Wed-Sun 10:30am-8:00pm.

kind service + delicious vegan options = perfect meal :-) - Edit

I made my family come here after seeing that it had good vegan options via the happy cow app. It was easy to find and just a short walk from the bridge. The service was extremely kind (even by Japanese standards), and the food was delicious. I had the dinner combo (~¥1500 / ~15 USD) w/ the fried tofu as the main entree. It came with rice, miso soup, three small vegetable sides, tea/coffee, and dessert (I had the vegan pound cake w/ vegan vanilla ice cream). My family ordered (a la carte) the tofu taco rice, the udon noodles w/ kimchi, and the udon noodles w/ kimchi and beef. Everything was so yummy! We waited a bit for our food but it was definitely worth it (and the sweet staff more than made up for it!) Highly recommend if you're in the area!

Pros: service was so so kind

Cons: food took a little long but the delicious food and

Good option if you are looking for a veg friendly restaurant - Edit

I was there today with some friends looking for a good place to eat and we come here as it was nearby.
They have a vegan menu set and 2 vegan cakes (we tried the matcha cake) and overal it was good as Lin as you like Japanese food.staff is very friendly and is quite inexpensive. Even if they are not a vegan or vegetarian restaurant I appreciate that they have options and that everything is non GMO and food is well balanced.

Pros: Well balanced food, Vegan menu set, Friendly staff

Pleasant Cafe, Lots of Vegan Options - Edit

My husband and I came here for lunch while in Arashiyama and really enjoyed it! The staff were friendly and were kind enough to let me borrow a cable to charge my camera while there. Some items on the menu include chicken, and as the kitchen is open into the seating area you might be uncomfortable with the smell of cooking meat. The vegan items we tried though were really nice, including the taco rice, curry, pound cake, and matcha cake. I'd go back if I was in the area again.

great food! 5 stars! - Edit

A lovely place with the best vegetariAn Japanese food I've had! Ordered the fried tofu dinner set and it was delicious. It came with miso soup, 3 vegetable sides and rice. The set also came with dessert and tea! Definitely a must go.

I suggest you eat at shigetsu for lunch and head to musubi for dinner :)

It's on the opposite side of the River (from the Raken arashiyama line). Totally worth the walk! :)

The Staff speak English and are oh so polite!
