Try to get some Dal from an Indian market. Their lentils are grown in dedicated areas since its such a large crop for them Toor Dal is my favorite. If there is no store in your area, try online. Never had a problem with lentils form Indian markets.
never heard of s komatsu. Whats the location in Tokyo? If they have a gluten-free diet its becasue they cater to foreigners. The rate of celiac in Japan is opposite of Italy. ALmost know one knows of it.
I never had any problem with any vinegars in Japan. they dont put soy sauce on the sushi but will put a sweet sauce on somethings unagi, anago and other things like mirugaia. They are shoyu (soy sauce) based and contain wheat. so no sauce.
t o explain that you would just have to say sauce (Sawsuu) toe ko mugee allergee
sashimi is only fish so no problem -- I eat way too much rice and never have problems from it and also am very sensitive. Stay away from bakeries in train stations!
grilled fish is ok she-o dakay means with salt only. Iwashi (ee washee) is a kind of sardine which usually does not have shoyou on it.
getting quick food anywhere is tough. there are 7-11 and fanily mart shops on every corner but its tough becasue even the onigiri rice balls have wheat (ko mugi) in them so you have to be able to read which ones are safe. Ususally the ones with red beans are ok. You can ask some to read it and ask komugi desu ka -- -- it takes a little getting used too. Im also vegan so I eat a lot of fruit and veggies but also go to chinese and indian places -Usually in indian places someone will speak english and you can get a good palak or curry but dont eat japanese curry, its filled with wheat. Tell me some of the areas in tokyo your going and maybe I can think of some places where you can eat. In Kyoto i just stay at my friends place=, matsubatei ryokan so he knows.. YOu can also try shabushabu just ask to cook the meat and veggies in salt water -- if you have your own sauces that works. there are a few health food stores in yokohama and even some in ginza to buy gluten-free sobas and shoyu but they are hard to find too.
There a few important things to learn -- komugi and allergy -- if you tell that to wait staff that will help. Also bring your own soy sauce with you and plan to eat much sushi as many other dishes use soy sauce and many other restaurants are hard unless you know Japanese.
If your staying in western style hotels they wil be able to help you. There are no gluten free restaurants but a few health food restaurants in Tokyo. If you google health food restaurants in tokyo you'll get a few places and they will understand more about gluten free. Also make sure you get the gluten free dining cars.
If you can find a high end soba place and get juwari soba that is 100% soba and no problem. -- you just cant have the sauce that comes with it. Yuba is special tofu cooked at your table. its fun and taste good although expensive. dip it in flavored salts
you can drink shochu and sake but not mugi cha -- nothing with mugi which can be wheat or barley.
grilled fish is ok if you can make sure its shio dake with salt and not with soy sauce - make sure -- I could tell you a couple of friends places but they only speak Japanese and are hard to find. What hotel in Tokyo will you be at?
if you make your own onigiri or get them from a restaurant where they are made fresh it should be ok. in 30 years i have not seen malt vinegar or ever had problems with the vinegar there.
usually its all rice vinegar and mirin -- also if you look for a place that has juwari soba -- 100% soba with no wheta, thats something you can enjoy -- just have your own sauce or use soba yu for the sauce. when I hike i just bring dried and fresh fruit and sometime onigiri. have a great trip
