Traveling to Japan as a gluten-free individual? Here’s a guide to get you started in planning, including tips and restaurant suggestions.
Traveling in Japan as a gluten-free individual will require advanced planning, as Japanese cuisine heavily relies on gluten-containing ingredients. Gluten is in soy sauce, miso, some sushi vinegar, and starch syrup, and the country is still behind in overall gluten-allergy awareness compared to other countries. While gluten-free restaurants and food establishments are popping up in recent years, the food options may be trickier than in your home country.
However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cross Japan off your travel destinations! With prior research and setting realistic expectations, you can enjoy your Japan adventures safely.
