You will probably need a well-stocked health store or supermarket to get some of the ingredients, but if you have an Asian/Chinese supermarket then you'll find all the ingredients easily and pretty cheap too. Once you've got the basic ingredients (most of which last for year or more) the rest is just buying in-season veggies, etc.
Most of the recipes are simple to prepare, which is a boon compared to some other Japanese cook-books where you can spend 5 hours in a kitchen preparing the ingredients and cooking!
I'd like to see an update of this book - there are so many other meat-like substitutes available commonly these days which easily can replace some of the ingredients.
It's a brilliant introduction to Japanese cooking, showing how it need not be too fussy to prepare and cook. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese food, even meat eaters.
Oh, and you'll lose weight eating this sort of stuff regularly and generally feel healthier.
Good recipies end up being an added bonus.
HOWEVER(and this is quite a big however)
(as shown by the capitals, I guess)
A lot of the ingredients are difficult to find. The 'Other countries' section in your local supermarket may be a little short on ingredients, so check to see if you have an asian supermaket (or similar) near your house.
(Or live near Chinatown, I guess.)
The recipes are simple though refined, definitely for people who enjoy their food.

This black & white book disappointed me as the front is so colourful. The recipes are okay but i hated the layout so much i gave up.Published 1 month ago by Hayley
No pictures, but other than that a fantastic book. Not only many lovely vegan Japanese recipes, but also some interesting background reading on veganism in Japan, etc.Published 4 months ago by SJ2016
I was disappointed in the lack of photographs for most recipes. Also, they often didn't tell you how to make certain ingredients from scratch i.e noodles, vegan meats etc...Published on 10 Aug. 2013 by Venus Reilly
