Tokyo Food Tour! Plastic Food

Plastic food on display at an indoor food court

Menu, schmenu. Who needs a written menu in Tokyo? Throughout Tokyo, thousands of restaurants and food vendors advertise their offerings with a display of plastic food. This isn’t the primary-colored plastic food that American children often keep in their toybox. No, this plastic food is so realistic you can stare at it closely and not be entirely sure if it’s the real thing!

Plastic food is surprisingly expensive… really expensive. A plastic nigiri sushi keychain costs around $10 (USD equivalent), and a plastic display of a full dinner platter can cost… wait for it… over $200.


See for yourself how realistic looking plastic food can be!
