This is not the best photo or representation of these cute little food figurines, but these are pieces of art work that are always tiny and miniature sized! You may have seen them before in souvenir shops or art & craft stores but I always admire how creative and detailed these little pieces of works are. They are tiny versions of the food that we eat! Super cute. 🙂 These ones are miniature bowls of ramen, chirashi, and uni!
I took this photo in the gift shop when visiting Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum in Hokkaido, Japan last month!
There have been so many other examples of these that I have seen in the past while travelling (I see these more so in Asia than anywhere else), but I can’t recall when it was when I took better ones, so this photo will do for now. 🙂
