Food theme parks, also called food museums, are places where countless food shops are housed. These theme parks are creatively decorated according to a specific theme. Unlike conventional theme parks, food theme parks are located indoors. In Japan, food theme parks are found in almost every corner of the country and Japanese people are known to patronize these places.
Japan has a great love for its food culture. For this reason, anywhere you may go in this country, you will always run into famous local restaurants that serve sumptuous dishes and special confections. As a result of Japanese people’s love for food, food museums are sprouting everywhere; especially in the area of Yokohama.
The fact that Japanese dishes in food theme parks are prepared by the most reputable restaurants, Japan (being a country of gourmets) is able to unlock the key to success in this type of food service. Consequently, the prices of foods served are not cheap. By average, a single person could spend 1000-2000 yen.
Aside from wanting to enjoy delicious foods and try new and interesting dishes, food museums are also visited for educational purposes, endearments and amusements. Here are some of the Food Theme Parks in Japan which every traveler must pay a visit.
