Plastic Food

If you’ve ever tried to order food from a restaurant with a menu written in a language you don’t understand, you know the anxiety of eating out as a foreigner in Japan. Fortunately, Japan has solved your problem decades ago, by creating plastic replicas of menu items that sit in the front windows of many restaurants. Most plastic food is extremely realistic, but others are a little… strange. If you’d like to bring home a replica of your favorite Japanese food on your Tokyo trip, head over to the Kappabashi district near Asakusa. But be warned; plastic food is many times more expensive than it’s real counterpart.
