Fake food! Check out Kappabashi Street near Asakusa, where you’ll find anything related to cooking and everything you need to know about the food culture in Japan. The stores here specialize in kitchen knives, dishes, containers and even fake food, or what the Japanese call «samples». These are actually the work of skilled craftsmen, who create models out of wax for just about any kind of dish. They are produced to be placed in showcases and give customers a clear idea of what their meal will look like. These food samples are very popular among the Japanese, as they can be used almost for ever and, above all, look very tempting!
