Review

In the heart of Asakusa's Kappabashi 'Kitchen Town' district, you'll find this shrine to all things fake food-related. Ganso Shokuhin Sample-ya has been producing plastic replicas for display in restaurant windows since 1932, but in recent years it's wisened up to the tourist trade. The shop's fake food keyrings, magnets and phone straps make for great (albeit far from cheap) souvenirs, and there's an upstairs space where visitors can try their hand at making mock tempura and lettuce.
