Yes, the Japanese do eat meat - it isn't all raw fish and tempura! They do appreciate a good fat steak, especially if it is wagyu beef (one of the four Japanese breeds of cattle), and they invariably serve it with a vegetable or three. Which is exactly what is replicated as the Kameyama Steak Candle, a "meal" that, believe it or not, is a candle you can light and enjoy for about an hour - much longer than an actual steak!
The "Kameyama" in the name comes from that of its maker, a company that has been making candles for about a century and is one of the most successful in Japan. And one look at this candle explains why: attention has been paid to every detail of the meat, the potato, the beans, the carrots, and even the plate, which is unglazed pottery in the traditional Sueyaki style. What's better is the fragrance: grilled beef like you'd have if you threw an actual steak on a charcoal BBQ!
