The history of "Yakitori"

The history of "Yakitori" dates back to the "Edo" period (1603-1867). Where it was described in a book (written in 1643) as Birds meat stuck on a skewer, grilled and flavoured with soy-sauce and sake based under the influence of European missionary and traders the breeding of chicken was introduced and became luxury food and a main ingredient for Yakitori. Yakitori Bars, often tiny, dark, smoky and very woody, became hugely popular after the 1960s as a drinking and eating place and much enjoyed for their atmosphere, quick service and their no nonsense tasty dishes.
