Soup

Sadly, most pre-made soups available in supermarkets contain animal products such as chicken, beef or fish stock. Below are some soups that are/appear to be vegan. You will see there are soy milk soups that are potentially vegan (they contain emulsifier and flavouring that is not specified as being from plants).

Tsubi Soup. Tsubi Soup, vegan miso soup, is available to purchase online (including on Amazon Japan) and in some stores. Click here to check out the website.
