Café Gives Diners A Taste Of Prison Food

A Japanese cafeteria in Hokkaido serves the same food that Abashiri prison inmates have for lunch each day.

In Japan there is a cafeteria whose specialty is prison food. The Prison Cafeteria at the Abashiri Prison Museum in Abashiri, Hokkaido serves the same food that the prisoners at the Abashiri Prison eat every day. The Prison Cafeteria serves meals that include steamed rice, fish, vegetables and soup.

The Abashiri prison was constructed in the Meiji era and was built to house more than a thousand criminals. The prison was modernized in 1984 and the old buildings were turned into a museum. The modernized prison, however, is still in use.
