Bonus Info: Vegan & Organic Food Tour in Tokyo
Before we give you our list of great vegetarian sushi restaurants, here's a bit of bonus information about some great vegetarian foodie tours in Tokyo. Magical Trip offers some really fun food tours with a local that will make you discover those hard-to-find quaint izakayas and restaurants serving great foods and drinks that only a local can guide you to.
Gompachi Sushi Shibuya 権八鮨渋谷 (Shibuya)
Located on the 14th floor, Gompachi Sushi has a stunning night view of the city on top of having some of the most sought-after vegetarian nigiri sushi in Tokyo. The place is not a vegetarian restaurant but they are very particular about their vegetables and have created this special vegan sushi platter that everyone can enjoy. The price is ¥1,300. Enjoy the natural sweetness and simplicity of their colourful vegetarian sushi (includes Japanese ginger, avocado, sprouts, mushroom, etc.). Aside from the sushi, try out their rich homemade tofu (¥540) or their "sora mame" (broad beans, ¥600) for a more complete meal. These are all worth the try even if you don't follow normally a vegetarian diet. There are many more choices of delicate dishes made from seasonal vegetable available.
Mominoki House モミノキハウス (Shibuya)
Mominoki House serves beautiful vegan dishes, such as the vegan sushi pictured above that are made with brown rice. Also located in Shibuya, this restaurant has amazing food, great service, and is reasonably priced too! You should try the vegetarian "karaage" (fried chicken) too, in this case, it's made of mock chicken. Lunch is between ¥1,000-1,500, and the dinner course is ¥4,000. This restaurant has a Japanese hipster kind of vibe.
Shirokanedai Sushicho 白金台すし兆 (Meguro)
This restaurant is another one that is not vegetarian but takes particular care in selecting really good quality vegetables and making some vegetable sushi. Some of them contain eggs so not everything is vegan. An assortment of 8 is ¥2,160. Aside from the sushi, you'll enjoy a comfortable traditional Japanese ambiance at the tatami seats or horigotatsu tables (low tables with a hole underneath for resting your legs). Enjoy there some good sake and shochu.
Located about a 10-minute walk from the Meguro station or a 5-minute walk from the Shirokanedai station.
Loving Hut (Ochanomizu/Jimbocho)
Their vegan sushi even contains some mock squid which is pretty darn impressive. Another thing to note is that it's a Taiwanese restaurant, and they serve vegan dim sum too!
If you're open to trying something else, have the mock unagi (eel) set! A real eel set is over ¥3,000, but this one is just ¥1,000.
Nadeshiko Sushi (なでしこ寿司)
This restaurant in Akihabara is not vegetarian but they do have a nice ¥2,500 vegetable sushi set. The sushi chef here is a woman, which is still rare in Japan. She has her own little style for the presentation. The sets are usually very colourful, sometimes even decorated with orchid flowers.
Located at a 5-minute walk from the Akihabara Station.
