The first Japanese person to eat gyōza is said to be Tokugawa Mitsuaki in the Edo Period. He was from the same clan as the ruling shogun at the time.
By the Meiji Period, from the 1860s, there was a Chinese restaurant serving gyoza and recipes were introduced in cookbooks.
The term used then was Chaozu, borrowed from the Chinese language. So the food itself was not something enjoyed by the common people.
After the Second World War, many soldiers returned to Japan from China, with a knowledge of Chinese food and culture. From that time on, gyoza became widely popular among the general population of Japan.
The Japanese style of gyōza, grilled rather than boiled or steamed, became mainstream. One story suggests the returning soldiers found it easier to use an iron plate to cook them, rather than a deep pot.
These days, Ramen and gyōza are found in Chinese restaurants, ramen shops, supermarket shelves and department stores, as well as being an easy to make at home.
In this class,you can make Japanese Ramen and Gyoza only by vegetables.
