The only way to make the Food Sample Capsule Toy Set more Japanese is to slap a picture of Mt. Fuji and geishas on the box: small (50 x 50 mm/1.9 x 1.9") toys that come from gachapon vending machines and food replicas combines two of Japan's most lasting trends that have also become part of its image in the West. Gachapon machines are now among the things that you see even at the airport and food samples are outside pretty much every restaurant in the country!
The Food Sample Capsule Toy Set consists of five very characteristic Japanese dishes, none of which is actually Japanese: they all became part of the country's cuisine during the 20th century! What you get is one plate or bowl each of meat sauce spaghetti, Napolitan spaghetti, curry, pizza, and ramen, each with a piece of cutlery (or chopsticks in the case of ramen) lifting the food as if on its way to your mouth. All are beautifully detailed, come with a ball chain so you can use them as keychains or hang them from your bag, and you don't have to try your luck at the gachapon machines!
