The art of Replica Foods!!

 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!

Yukiko has great knowledge and expertise which made my tour very enjoyable. She speaks and understands english very well. I would never have seen all the things I saw or experienced without her help.

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!
