Introducing vegan restaurants in Shinsaibashi and Namba!

What is veganism?

Veganism refers to a lifestyle and diet that does not consume any products derived from animals.

This involves avoiding not only animal products such as meat, fish, dairy, eggs and honey, but also any foods or products that contain ingredients derived from animals.

The vegan philosophy is based on respecting animal rights, protecting the environment and promoting good health.

Veganism extends beyond food to clothing, cosmetics, everyday items, etc.
For example, vegans avoid wool, silk, and leather products, and choose cosmetics that are not tested on animals. People who live a vegan lifestyle make these choices to reduce animal suffering and increase the sustainability of the planet.

Percentage of vegan foreigners

In recent years, the number of vegans has been increasing worldwide. The vegan lifestyle has become a major trend especially in Western countries.

For example, it has been reported that the number of vegans in the United States increased by 600% between 2014 and 2019. In the UK, it is said that approximately 1.16% of adults are vegan.

The vegan population in Japan is still a minority, but it is gradually increasing due to growing health consciousness and animal welfare concerns.
The number of vegan restaurants is also increasing, especially in major metropolitan areas, and the environment is gradually improving to accommodate foreign tourists visiting Japan.
