5 Best Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Osaka

Wondering where to eat meat-free in Osaka? This guide highlights some of the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Osaka that you should check out!

Veganism is becoming increasingly popular in Osaka. There are several dedicated vegan and vegetarian restaurants, as well as many other restaurants that offer vegan options.

This is likely due to a number of factors, including the growing awareness of the environmental and health benefits of a plant-based diet, as well as the increasing availability of vegan products.

Sure, Japan is known for its love for seafood and meat. However, vegans and vegetarians are not outcasts at all. Here are our top recommendations for the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Osaka:

2. Green Earth

Another vegetarian restaurant in Osaka with a very chill ambiance, Green Earth delivers a range of meat-free Japanese dishes without breaking the bank.
