All You Can Eat Japanese Food! | April 29, 2010

The moment you (well, I) have all been waiting for is here! I present to you: All You Can Eat Sushi & Japanese Food! Actually, all I am presenting are the photographs and some commentary. But, if this post doesn’t spike your interest in going to Japan, I don’t know what will.

The Japanese were once very small and fragile yet healthy people. Their meals were eaten at home, and consisted mostly of some fish, vegetables, a little rice, and soup (though this varied according to where in Japan they came from).

Today, the bustling economy and hectic business culture forces most city dwellers to eat out. In other words, Japanese businessmen have now more freedom from their wives (who often work as well these days) to eat tastier food and more of it. Sorry if this sounds sexist, but that’s the way it pretty much is. This is one of the several reasons for the rapid development of the all you can eat scene in Japan. As a tourist on your Japan travel, you get to reap the harvest.

If you were to look hard enough (though usually it’s not difficult at all) during your Japanese vacation, you would be able find an all you can eat deal on almost any type of Japanese food. Many times these are extremely good deals, as they could be very cheap. It would be safe to say that your budget, whatever it is, could accommodate going out for all you can eat sushi even. The most popular types of all you can eat restaurants are:

1. Sushi

4. Chinese. Yes, Chinese – how surprising, right? Unfortunately, no pictures for this one.

There are many more types of Japanese food that you can pig out on at all you can eat restaurants. Even if not, there is always a way to find cheap deals on even the most expensive of dishes from the Japanese cuisine.

  2. Can’t wait to get to Japan and taste every single thing.

    By the way, the running sushi part reminded me of a nice video I saw a few months ago on YT:
