Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉) meaning "grilled meat", is a Japanese term that, in its broadest sense,
refers to grilled meat cuisine. "Yakiniku", originally referred to Western barbecue food. The term
was popularized and became mainstream by Japanese writer Kanagaki Robun in the Seiyo Ryoritsu Meiji period, in 1872.
The term later became associated with Korean-derived cuisine (Korean Barbecue) during the early Shōwa period. In light of the Korean War, the language associated with Korea in Japan were divided into both North Korea (Kita Chōsen), and South Korea (Kankoku) respectively. The reference to a "Yakiniku-style restaurant" was founded as diplomatically-correct language for Asian-infused cuisine, regardless of their country of origin.
