Eating in Tokyo / MSG

bonemarrow | Feb 28, 201007:32 AM     13

Hey all,

I'm going to be in Tokyo for quite a while this spring, and I'm quite concerned that I won't be able to avoid MSG which I am severely allergic to.

I used to love Japanese soups/ramen, etc, but I'm worried that since i've become sensitive to it, I'll be limited to sushi and tonkatsu.

Does anybody have any tips on what I can for sure eat, and what i for sure *cannot* eat (Ramen, obsviously)? I would really appreciate any advice you can give me.

Also, please don't respond with something snarky.

Thanks!
