Fake Food Japan Online Store Now Open for Business

Fake Food Japan, handmade “made in Japan” fake food vendor, is pleased to announce the launch of its online store.

Online PR News – 19-May-2012 – Osaka, Japan – Fake Food Japan, the first online store of its kind, launched its web site, www.fakefoodjapan.com, which makes it possible for fake food and Japan enthusiasts alike to purchase authentic “made in Japan” handmade fake food themed items over the web. By launching its web site, Fake Food Japan has now made it a lot easier for internationally-based fans of “made in Japan” fake food to buy items as opposed to traveling all the way to Japan to purchase items from designated vendors and outlets.

Fake Food Japan launched not only with the idea of giving fans another option to satisfy their fake food shopping needs, but also to promote the rich history of the Japanese fake food industry that has been around since 1932. “Since its inception some 80 years ago in Osaka - food capital of Japan, the Japanese fake food industry has evolved into what is now a US$100 million industry in Japan”, states Justin D. Hanus, founder and CEO of Fake Food Japan. “A major reason for the initial success of the industry can be attributed to the American military servicemen who were stationed in Japan after the conclusion of World War II. Not being able to read the menu in Japanese restaurants, restaurant owners incorporated life-size fake food displays to attract the growing number of American servicemen as customers.”

With the fake food culture being a success in Japan, Fake Food Japan is striving to create awareness of this particular Japanese culture and expand the market internationally via its recently launched web site. With over 800 items available for purchase at www.fakefoodjapan.com such as iPhone cases, magnets, and USB flash drives, interested parties can view the entire handmade product line and learn more about the Fake Food Japan brand.
