"A place to back
to your origin"

That is AIN SOPH.

Welcome to AIN SOPH. 

We are a vegan restaurant group in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan since 2009.

‘Ain Soph,’ meaning ‘infinity’ in Hebrew, is a reflection of our authentic selves.

Through food, we can reconnect ourselves to nature and become closer to the essence of who we are.

We believe that in order to be close to nature, we must respect nature.

This is why our menu is plant based - free from meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, and other animal-derived products.

Vegan food is inclusive of everyone - not just those with special dietary needs -food that everyone can sit around the same table and enjoy.

We hope that you have a pleasant experience with us.


Yuki Shirai



Our menu is 100% plant-based (vegan). We do not use any meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or other animal-derived products.


Each of our restaurants serves unique menus. Please check below for a description of each of our restaurants or go to LOCATIONS in the top bar and click on a restaurant to check our menu.

Gluten Free and Oriental Vegan (free from onion, garlic, and other pungent roots) options are available at each location.
However, please note that many of our dishes contain pungent roots, and our kitchens are not an allergen-free environment. We cannot guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur.

Please contact media@ain-soph.jp for further information and concerns.
