2 doctors agree
In brief: Grocery stores
If you don't speak japanese you may have to buy & prepare your own food.
Ask a friend who speaks japanese to translate this warning: "i am allergic to sesame & sesame oil. If i eat this food, even a small amount, i can have a life-threatening reaction that can kill me in a few minutes. Please do not serve me any food containing sesame". Show this to the waiter at every eatery. Always carry epipen!
