    Thanks for this info! Are you aware of any other brands of organic milk sold in Japan? Something that might be sold in a local everyday supermarket perhaps?

      Hi Marie! Thanks for your message. Unfortunately there aren’t many organic milk brands available, and I haven’t seen them at the regular supermarkets or convenience stores. Here are some more brands on the internet:

    Hi Kate, We are travelling to Tokyo + Kyoto next month and I was wondering what are the recommended brands of Full-fat Fresh Milk we could get there? My 19 month old drinks fresh milk and isn’t very interested in food at the moment. Thanks!

      Hi Elena, I buy a few different kinds of milk for my kids. Some milks in Japan have slightly different flavors (and different smell), so I would probably recommend buying small cartons of different brands and test it. I am sure you will be able to find a brand that you and your baby will like. Another tip is that Starbucks in Japan has whole fresh milk for kids and bananas. I often get these for my kids when I am traveling around, as it is very convenient and it is good milk. Hope this helps!

    Hi, we are traveling to Yokohama and would like to know if you are aware of any organic, lactose free, non fat milk available in Japan. My child is extremely sensitive to dairy products and does not like soy or almond milk. If you have any info, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Nicolette

      Hi Nicolette, thank you for your message. I am not sure actually…Many kids that are lactose intolerant in Japan drink soy milk, and I am not sure of other alternatives sorry. I would recommend to bring powered form with you (if you have), or to ask at an organic imported supermarket while you are here. Sorry I could not be of more help! x Kate
