About this sight

This store specializes in the food replicas and food models usually seen in restaurants and cafes across Japan. Here, visitors can try their hand at making their own fake food as a special souvenir. Food replicas have been popular in Japan since the early Showa period (1920s) and were commonly used to help customers order, as menus were not common at the time. Sample Village Iwasaki is closed every Tuesday as well as on the first Saturday in February, the first Thursday in October and for the end of year holidays from December 29 through January 5.
