If you get hungry while sightseeing around Japan, it’s a given that you’d want to eat a lot of delicious food. In those cases, it’s recommended to go to a yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant with an all-you-can-eat plan. By paying a flat fee, you can eat as much as you want within a time limit! Here are the top 14 yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo with all-you-can-eat plans.
