Will Miss #60 - food that looks like (other) Japanese food
When I was in the U.S., I saw food that was meant to look like other things, but often it was designed for kids or, if it was designed for adults, it was pretty cheesy or tacky. In Japan, there is a plethora of highly-detailed and relatively sophisticated food that resembles other types of food. For instance, trays of chocolates that resemble trays of sushi or candy designed to look like a bento.
I'll miss these well-designed and clever food items designed to look like other kinds of Japanese food.
