 Have you ever seen food samplings at a restaurant show window? They look just as same as real foods, but actually these are made of resin! Replica foods originated in Japan about 80 years ago. It is the best way to show the menu or products without wasting money of real things. It's rarely seen these in Western countries, but it 's getting popular in some Asian countries.

You can experience to make your own food samples (2kinds of Tempra & a lettuce) at Ganso Shokuhin sample shop which was the first replica foods company in Japan. On the workshop, we use wax instead of resin which was an original material of making samplings until the late 1970s.

It 's amazing and fun experience that you can learn how to make it!

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a four years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!
