Replica foods were first created in Japan at some point between the end of the Taisho period and the beginning of the Showa period.
While becoming popular at department store restaurants, they also served to proliferate a culture of eating western style cuisine among the common people.

Main Materials

Most modern replica foods are made from resin.
They used to be made from wax, but manufactures switched to using resin because wax is highly affected by direct sunlight and has other durability issues.
