Organic Food - Stores & Restaurants in Tokyo

Poste date: Thursday, February 1, 2018

Although there aren’t as many organic stores in Japan as there are in the US and Europe, the number of stores is gradually increasing. People are becoming more sensitive to how food is grown or raised because it can have a major impact on our mental and emotional health. More and more organic restaurants, supermarkets, farmers markets, and cafes are opening in Japan. Japanese office ladies are usually concerned with trying to consume organic food when possible during their lunch breaks.

Japan is known for healthy-diets, anti-aging, and fermented products. For everyone wanting to eat healthy we recommend including healthy and organic Japanese ingredients in all your meals.
