Last year we held a crowdfunding campaing to raise money for the creation of a paper map listing all vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Kyoto, a “vege-map”.

Thanks to the generous donations of over 100 people throughout Japan, we were able to achieve our crowdfunding goal.
The detail is available here (In Japanese):

With all of your help, the vege-map team has spent the last eight months designing, gathering information for, and constantly improving the map.

Now, after a year in the making, the map is finally here!
To mark this occasion, we’d like to invite you all to a formal unveiling, and celebration of the completion of the map.

Vege Project Japan will also be unveiling the updated version of their nationwide online vege-map.

The venue for this party will be where Vege Project all began five years ago, Kyoto University.
Thanks to the generous support of the Kyoto University Co-Op, we have been able to reserve the stylish Café-Restaurant Camphora for our celebration.
We have arranged a sumptuous vegan buffet that we’re sure you’ll enjoy!

Naturally, we will also be distributing copies of the vege-map to everyone in attendance.
So we hope you’ll you come and join us for what is sure to be a great night!
