The capital of Japan is one of the most intense and beautiful places in the world. The contrast from neon lights and busy crosswalks to historic temples and lush gardens is like no other place you could imagine. Spend a day in the museums and sustainable shopping around the city, and pop into the many vegan restaurants along the way. Some of our wolfpack babes recently traveled to this fast-paced, stunning city, so keep reading for tips & tricks and some Wolven Threads in between!

What to See: Fushimi Inari Shrine, also often known as the Fox Shrine, is a magnificent landmark with thousands of vermilion torii gates. Inari is the Shinto god of rice who was believed to communicate with humans using foxes. You can go and marvel at the five shrines located along the green mountainside, or find some trails and get lost in the forest for a bit.
What to Do: Pop in for a yoga flow at one of the many yoga studios around the city, such as Sun and Moon studio in Shinagawa-ku. Tokyo is a culturally stimulating city and there are so many museums you can visit while you are there. One of the top rated is the Edo-Tokyo musuem where you can learn some of the debatably most important history of the city.
Street fashion in Tokyo is the best place to debut Wolven Threads sneak peeks
What to Eat: Tokyo and Japan in general are known for sushi, sushi and more sushi. All of that raw fish may be a deterrent for our fellow animal loving vegans, but surprisingly some amazing vegan restaurants are popping up all over the city! Rainbow Raw Food serves 100% vegan food that is mostly raw with no additives or chemicals. If you're looking for a vegan comfort food option after a long day of walking & exploring, check out Olu'Olu Cafe! Just make sure your meal starts with the garlic edamame.
Where to Shop: You can pop into some of the most vibrant and fun stores while strolling the streets of Tokyo. However, you must take a pit stop to the sustainable store of People Tree. They have been in business for over 25 years and have prided themselves as a ethical and environmentally sustainable brand. They have partnered with Fair Trade producers, garment workers, artisans and farmers in the developing world to make their line.
