There’s an entertaining and enlightening article here that tells the story of how all-you-can-eat style dining came to be called バイキング(viking) in Japan that’s well worth a click! I knew there was in an interesting tale behind that, but I’d forgotten the details until I read it when I was putting this post together.
In addition to バイキング and 食べ放題(たべほうだい), all-you-can-eat offers are also called ビュッフェ(buffet) here.
The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
