The technique of an artisan

The artisan technique booth features an exhibit of elaborate food replicas created by Iwasaki Mokei's artisans,
who have faithfully reproduced the textures of the ingredients and created snapshots of the dishes at their most delicious moments.
These truly amazing food replicas look even more real than the real thing!

A snapshot of a moment,Super fine details

Food replicas enable artisans to express the movement of the food. When creating food replicas, our artisans carefully consider the best way to present each dish so as to make it most memorable.

From the tiny bones that are barely visible in a slice of fish, to the wrinkles on a tangerine peel, fine details such as these bear witness to the thorough attention to detail practiced by our master artisans when creating these food replicas. These little details are the secret behind making these food replicas look so realistic.
