FOOD ALLERGY SUPPORT BOOK
About Our Food Allergy Support Book
~Introduction of allergy labeling in Japan~
It is our great pleasure to publish this Food Allergy SupportBook. We would like our children to never give up their dream of traveling abroad due to a food allergy. Every child deservesan equal chance to see the world, even if he/she has a food allergy. We would similarly hope that people, who are traveling to Japan with food allergies, enjoy deliciousJapanese dishes. This book is written in both Japanese and English to provide support.
These pages are colored in Japanese traditional tones. We hope Japanese children traveling abroad will spread the beauty of Japanese tradition and culture, and travelers from all over the world will come to know the colorful and rich seasons of Japan.
Wishing all travelers a wonderful stay.
