Japanese Plastic Food Samples That Look So Real, But Too Artistic To Eat

Anyone who has ever traveled in Japan without knowing much of the language can appreciate the abundance of beautifully crafted plastic food samples placed outside of restaurants. It’s a great convenience for foreign visitors, and even if you know the language it gives you an immediate idea of what a shop has to offer.
While every so often, you can catch a special on Japanese television detailing just how much hard work and effort the makers of these plastic food samples put into their craft, that doesn’t mean they aren’t above having some fun with it. Iwasaki-be-I, Japan’s top plastic food sample maker, held a contest within their company to show off the creativity of their employees.
