Japanese language teacher Sari Kondo
has created a guide that introduces useful Japanese phrases
for vegetarians/vegans. If you are not sure how to say "I
don't eat meat" or "I'm vegan" in Japanese,
this page will be a great help. Also, you could ask Ms. Kondo,
an expert of teaching Japanese, if she is available for your
Japanese lesson. Japanese
