In August, Nagaragawa Railway in Gifu Prefecture started running a theme train decorated with plastic food models made locally in Gujo City. It's currently scheduled to run until August 2024. Japanese fake foods have a global reputation for their extraordinary craftsmanship. Join us as we listen to the story in Japanese. Later in the program we look at the history of the craft and how the molding methods are being adapted for other fields such as medicine.
