    Thank you so much for your advice. I am traveling to Tokyo soon with my celiac daughter. We are very nervous. Any additional advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for this blog info. I’m travelling to Japan next year with my sister, and she is very sensitive to gluten (affects her mobility), so we are staying in places with kitchen to be able to cook something. Anyway, we love to eat new things and would like to have more info of how to check ingredients in prepared food or drinks.
    Just join facebook group ^^

    I’m thinking of going to Japan on holiday but I am concerned as I have celiac. Do you think I should not go to Japan at all ?

    I have also sent a request to join the Facebook group. This summer, my family and I will be traveling to Japan. My mother is a celiac, and it would be lovely if we could join the group. It would be great to know what and where to eat, and for example where to have gluten free breakfast in Kyoto.

    Thank you, greetings from Holland.

    Hey, I will traveling to Hokkaido soon this week and my father is gluten free, so I’m afraid he won’t be able to eat much. Are there any snacks that he can eat or any meals that gluten free in Japan?

    I was wondering where I can buy your bread in Osaka? Do you have a list of the breads you make?

    I have just recently moved to Wakayama. (Closer to osaka)

    Would you recommend any stores that may provide a gluten free soya sauce ?

    Also would you recommend any gluten free restaurants?
