For those of us who do not eat meat and/or any animal products eating out in Japan can be a mission. There are not many options for ethical eaters so to stumble upon one that exceeds expectations can really make your day. Well, I hope this recommendation will make your day if you are planning on staying in Himeji long enough to enjoy a delicious and cruelty free meal.
I recently wrote an article for Matcha Travel Magazine about a little gem of a restaurant I found when I visited Himeji, a city famous for its grand, gorgeous castle. The full article, A Vegan Friendly Haven For Traveling Foodies in Himeji, can be read here.
Sakurasaku is located very conveniently next to Himeji’s main attraction, the Himeji Castle. I dare say both are great, “must do” spots in Himeji – no matter if you are a meat eater or not. This traditional Japanese restaurant is also an organic food shop and a café – it truly caters for everyone. You can take your meat eating friend there as well as the place also caters for our carnivorous mates.
Itadakimasu, enjoy your meal!
