Eating at Yakiniku alone 2013/7/22 18:25
Hi,

For those who live in Japan, would any of you go to Yakiniku alone? I am going to Japan alone this November and I might want to eat Yakiniku while I am there. But I imagine sitting at Yakiniku alone surrounded by group of friends or families may not be very comfortable environment.

Thanks

That's something I'd feel awkward doing, eating at a yakiniku place alone. I'm sure it's ok though.

It's called "hitori-yakiniku." I'm not into yakiniku as much as that, but it's not that uncommon.

Hi.
To be sure, there are few hitori-yakiniku.
But there is sometimes hitori-yakiniku.
I go to hitori-yakiniku sometimes.
It may be refused very rarely.
It is better to leave crowded restaurant, and too high-class restaurant.
Have fun!

There's a great drama called Kekkon Dekinai Otoko.
A frequently occuring joke there is that the anti-social guy always goes to yakiniku alone. When people see him they comment on how weird he is.
So...yes, it is a bit weird.
But so what? Who will see you? You're a tourist, you're alone. It does happen.

There is a great Yakiniku restaurant next to the Korean Consulate in Osaka.
It has booths, rather than being an open space type restaurant.
I'm sure a place with booths will be OK for you
Good luck and enjoy!!!
