The Tokyo Vegan Meetup page has experienced a burst of buffet events at various restaurants around town. This is good for little fatties like us. We have been to many international themed buffets, including Indian, Irish, Spanish, French, Mexican, and good ol' American food. :)

The Tokyo Vegan Meetup hosted a cooking class to make warabi mochi. We covered the red bean paste in our starchy mochi and then coated in roasted soy powder. That soy powder was bitter and not very good, I wish we had left the mochi plain after preparation.

We walked over to a temple after the festival. Our tutor mentioned Sensōji, also known as Asakusa Kannon Temple. It's a Buddhist temple, and was pretty similar to others we've seen. There is a market area outside the temple with lots of small shops and crowds of people. There are SO MANY PEOPLE sightseeing at this temple.

We went over to Asakusa for a small festival. It was hosted inside a building, so the temperature was well controlled. We split a bento box of adorable sushi pieces, an assortment of steamed goods from Loving Hut, a tofu quiche with soy ham pieces in it, a cold piece of pizza with soy cheese, and a falafel plate (not photographed for some reason).

We went to Aladdin's, our favorite falafel place! We had to, since we based our wedding menu around our favorite meal there. :) We also went to Quan Yin, an all-vegan pan-Asian place, with my vegan brunch crew. Afterwards, a few of us went to Frozen Cafe in Bellaire for vegan gelato. Nom nom. We went to Benihana one night too, because they accommodate Dan's giant circle of friends. We have the photo from Benihana framed in our apartment.
