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!

Our tour with Yukiko was not only the best way that we could have spent our day in Tokyo, but one of the most memorable tours that we've been on. Each moment was customized to our particular interests and introduced us to parts of Tokyo that we would have never found on our own. Memories for a lifetime. Thank you, Yukiko!

“ Best decision ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Tyaz -   Tour Guide: YUKIKO

Yukiko was the best decision I made in Tokyo. We booked her for 1 whole day. She arranged the day so perfectly and so efficiently. The highlight for the day for us was the lunch she arranged at a traditional japanese joint with traditional music. Food was delicious and the owner was really nice. We wish the best of luck for Yukiko and hope to see her again in the future

“ Absolutely fantastic Tokyo experience ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Gareth -   Tour Guide: YUKIKO

Yukiko was kind enough to come to our hotel to teach our two kids some Japanese origami during our two day whirlwind tour of Tokyo. Our kids were looking forward to it more than anything else in their Tokyo trip (much of which was centered around exploring the big city which can be more fun for grown ups than kids) and they talked about their couple of hours with Yukiko as their favourite part of ...

We had a perfect and fun day with Yukiko. We were on the beginning of a two week trip to Japan and Thailand. Working with Yukiko to plan our tour was very easy. We conversed over email for around 2 months to custom tailor our tour. We only had 1 day to experience the best of Tokyo so Yukiko and I worked on a 5 destination trip plus lunch. Each stop on our tour was great. We started at the Out...
