Hi all. Next week we are travelling to Japan for the first time and we are all very excited! Our son is a T1 diabetic and we all usually eat a low carb diet. I understand this might be difficult in Japan and was wondering if any of you no of a low carb restaurant in Kyoto, Tokyo and/or Osaka. It would be much appreciated if someone can also tell me how to write/say "No rice, please" and "No noodles, please" in Japanese. TIA!

I believe Japanese rice is already about 10 grams less in carbohydrates per every 100-gram serving. I'm sure you'll get a lot of quizzical looks from the servers when you say "no rice". As for noodles, Japan has a multitude of types: udon, soba, ramen, somen. Have you looked into their carb content as well?

Many dishes have sauces with sugar (it's a near-staple with soy sauce, mirin, and sake combined).
