Just like the real thing! Try creating replica foods for yourself!

Have you noticed the replica food samples frequently displayed outside of restaurants and cafeterias in Japan (or even abroad)? These replicas are said to have originated in Gujo City, and even to this day 60 % of all such products sold in Japan are made here.

You can try your hand at making replica pizza, a parfait, lettuce, spaghetti, or more at the "Sample Village Iwasaki," one the several food replica studios in town!
