About me:

I’ve been involved in “VegeProject” to make Japan vegetarian/vegan friendly. \\Thinking about sustainability, the choice of what we eat is important. I’ve thought vegetarian/vegan diet is one of the solutions to make our society better considering the environmental impact, food shortage, animal welfare/right and our body/mind.\\When I was a student, I founded VegeProject to introduce vegetarian menus to our university and vegan menus became available in all the canteens of Kyoto Uni.\\Now, VegeProject is official organization, making veggie options in schools, restaurants and cities, and giving vegan certification. Also we make veggie related animation and web media.
