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.

Those elderly ladies were so lovely! :D I hope that when I'm old I'm also still going to have breakfast surrounded by my best friends <3

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

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.

So that's why Japanese anime school girls are so peachy.

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.

Abroad in Japan

Delicious mouthfeel aside, I can't say I'm enthusiastic at the thought of re-trying this any time soon. I forgot to mention in the video I'm the world's worst cook, and thus I'm forced to eat out all day every day. But given the lack of vegan options in Japanese restaurants, it'd mean I'd also be unable to eat out and would inevitably starve (or be forced to learn how to cook god forbid). That said, I'm trying to cut down the amount of meat I eat this year, as part of my groundbreaking strategy to live a healthier lifestyle. I don't need to read a scientific journal to realise that sausages and bacon aren't exactly the most nutritious additions to your diet. ALSO, how awesome is it that the woman in the fruit shop visited Uzbekistan?!

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

Elderly Japanese often are so nice, even if you're only a beginner at speaking/learning Japanese. In Tokyo, I was commuting past a small bakery every morning and went there to get my breakfast. Those ladies were so nice and tried so hard talk and just hold a conversation with a random foreigner.
