In Japan, many restaurants have a realistic replica of their menu on display, called Shokuhin Sampuru. Making Shokuhin Sampuru is now a unique tradition born in the Protected content , where dishes are made so precisely that they could be mistaken for the real ones! These food samples attractively convey the goodness of any restaurant's menu and also act as a powerful promotional tool, making the components of a menu simply clear at a glance.
In fact, each sample is created to order and handmade.
Originally made of wax, now produced with resin or silicon, the specimens have not only become more precise over the years, but have also developed into creative works of art.

Enjoy Tokyo's food culture through this original exhibit where you can taste everything with your eyes!
