Sample Kobo (food model workshop)食品サンプル創作館さんぷる工房
Sample Kobo is an experience-type tourist attraction in the Gunjohachiman District, Gifu Prefecture. Located in a 150-year-old building converted from a “machiya” (traditional wooden townhouse), Sample Kobo provides visitors with the opportunity to see, handle, and try their hand at making non-edible food models (of the type used in restaurant window displays in Japan). Advance booking by telephone is needed to participate in the experiential activities. At a price of 900 yen (tax not included) for one item, participants can spend around 20 minutes making model Tempura or ice cream; this activity is very popular with both adults and children. Sample Kobo also has a shop selling lifelike food models in the form of mobile phone charms, fashion accessories, etc., which make great souvenir gifts.

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
