Make Japanese Food That Will Never Spoil


Join a plastic food model class in Osaka to make delicious-looking souvenirs


During your travels in Japan, you will likely notice many restaurants with plastic models of their food in the front windows. This rather unique aspect of the culture makes deciding which meal to enjoy stress-free. Even if you don’t know Japanese, you can still see the types of ingredients used and the size of each menu item. Ordering is made so much easier thanks to these plastic wonders.


While visiting the culinary capital of Osaka City, you can take a bit of this ingenious hospitality home with you by visiting Design Pocket Osaka. The friendly staff will help you make your own model in a special craft session. You can choose from a variety of craft lessons based on your favorite (or favorite-looking) Japanese food—sushi, takoyaki (octopus dumplings), or matcha parfait—and difficulty level. Not only are your plastic models going to look good enough to eat, but they will also function as magnets, memo clips, and key chains depending on what you choose to make. If making your own is not enough, you can also choose from a myriad of store-made plastic models to take home as unique souvenirs.




As you dine on all of the delicacies Osaka has to offer, don’t miss a chance to visit a store dedicated to helping you to  appreciate the hospitality that Japanese plastic food models represent even more deeply.


 Access: From Shin-Osaka Station, take the Midosuji Subway Line to Namba Station (about 15 minutes).
