Inspirational Vegan Instagram-Accounts in Japan!

July 12, 2019

Have you ever been to a place and thought it’d be interesting to know it from a local point of view? Me too! During my travels, I always think it would be different and interesting to see what the people that actually live there see. I want to know what they eat in the morning, where they go out, and what they buy in the supermarket. Especially, I wonder how would vegan people’s life looks like.


In the 21st century, we can totally fulfill this wish. I’m talking, of course, about local social media accounts. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for all the inspiration I receive, especially from Instagram. Instagram is actually my favorite social media platform, since it’s the most visual and therefore a little more ‘artistic’, I suppose. My favorite content is of course – vegan food! That’s why I love to follow vegan foodies’ accounts. That’s why I love to follow the accounts of vegan foodies. It’s actually my guilty pleasure – but why should I feel guilty alone when I can take you with me? 😉


In this post I will share some of the more inspirational Instagram accounts I’ve discovered in Japan. It constantly gives me new ideas and useful information – which is a great reason to share it with you!

    So many I didn’t know about, thanks! The Japan Vegan Labeling & Options Project Instagram here: has information about our petition for vegan labeling in Japan

    We collect signatures, keep people updated on how the petition is doing and also share info about vegan products in Japan, products that are not vegan but look as if they might be (so you know what to watch out for) and organize writing in to companies to ask for more vegan options.
