Welcoming place, delicious food - Edit

The host was very understanding about veganism and vegetarianism, checking ingredients with us and making sure everything was to our taste. He was also super friendly, informing us about the food and how to eat it and making us feel comfortable!
We enjoyed mixed sushi and kakiage both of which could be made vegan if requested and both of which were very delicious! The veg miso soup and hojicha were also really good. I recommend the local pale ale if you get the chance to try it.

Pros: Very friendly , Delicious food , Comfortable atmosphere

Very good! - Edit

We had lunch here before hiking Mount Misen and we really enjoyed it. The vegan lunch set was huge and came with lots of tempura, rice, a soup and small vegetable side dishes.

I couldn't finish it all but my fiance helped me out.
It's a good and affordable (around 1500 yen) option for lunch on Miyajima island :)

Pros: vegan lunch, affordable

One of Our Favorite Meals of the Trip - Edit

We visited in September and had the veggie tempura and three vegetarian sushi rolls. This was some of the best vegetarian tempura and sushi of my life! We loved the ume shiso roll and the varied tempura (burdock, lotus, even a tempura shiso leaf). It started off a bit rough when the waiter seemed to think that vegetarian meant fish stock, and when I reiterated no fish, no fish stock he repeated vegan. So we said yes, no fish no fish stock, vegan. After that initial confusion, he was a fantastic waiter and said that the chef was preparing special tempura sauce for us without fish stock, and took the time to explain what each tempura was, as well as which sushi roll was best by itself or dipped in sauce. Could not recommend the place enough, just be sure to be clear that you don’t want any fish or fish stock when ordering. If I could rate it five stars I would (five stars are only an option for fully vegetarian or vegan restaurants in this app)

Absolutely lovely staff, beautiful food - Edit

I was blown away by how lovely and accommodating the staff were. They understand vegetarianism and veganism and were happy to have our food made specially for us. They also seemed genuinely pleased that we were enjoying our meal (we had the vegetable tempura, which was delicious)and were happy to chat with us.
If you don't speak Japanese, the staff speak English very well and the menu is also in English as well as Japanese.
Highly recommend.

Pros: Delightful staff who understand vegetarianism , Great food
