I attempted to be a vegan for a day. It wasn't an overly fun experience, but at least I got to do it in the town they call the "Venice of Japan". And so our 2,000km Journey Across Japan continues.

Bananas, nuts and tofu is the breakfast of champions. Also lunch. And also dinner. Can’t wait to see your next video to make sure you didn’t die from protein deficiency.

People keep saying just “Download the Happy Cow app etc... “ yeah maybe in the center of Tokyo but trust me , living in Japan for almost 20 years you won’t find many options for vegans here... and even when u do you’ll have to survive on the same boring stuff rather than actually enjoying a variety of foods. 99% of people here ARE NOT vegan . The concept is hardly even understood.

Chris, your documentary film-making skills really are excellent. Your videos are better than many major tv network docus, and ontop of that your genuine manner/attitude of presenting. Your diet may mainly comprise of fried chicken and wagyu beef (and McDonalds..) but at least it isn't an exclusive diet of your own arse. All the bloody best x

2:28 For a moment I thought the lady asked Chris, "Have your been to UK" and Chris replies "No, I haven't".

Should have downloaded the HappyCow app! One look and I found a place in Kurashiki called Café Nature, they have a bunch of vegan options that looked amazing.

It's such a shame you weren't in Osaka or Kyoto when you were given your vegan challenge. I am a vegan living in Osaka and there are plenty of places to eat. Kyoto is absolutely overflowing with vegan restaurants! To be honest, in the two years I've been living here, veganism has been growing HUGELY in Japan, with new vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants opening all the time and even local vegan festivals taking place. It's also a shame you didn't know about HappyCow (website and app). You can put any city in the world into their search bar and they'll show you where all the vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and shops are. Looking on HappyCow I see that Okayama has two vegan restaurants, one vegetarian restaurant and thirteen omni restaurants that have veg options. Even Onomichi has four omni restaurants that have veg options, so you could've had a proper meal instead of those minging cold potatoes!

But why didn't you just get onigiri for lunch, like Sharla the vegan does all the time?
