People who do not eat any animal products such as egg and dairy product are called “vegan.” There are few vegans in Japan, and some people eat only vegetables once a week for their health. The following restaurants are recommended for such people. 

Popular Breakfast in Tsuboya

A vegan café “Café Niffera” is 5 minutes walk from Tsuboya Yachimun (pottery) Street. It is a café adjoining of short stay apartment, and customers can eat lots of Okinawan organic vegetables and fruits here as breakfast.

Açaí bowl, smoothie with seasonal vegetables, and vegan plate are very popular. Would you like to spend a wonderful morning hour at a garden where rice paper butterfly flies? The café opens from 8:00-10:00 (final order), so make sure to remember the business hours.
