Tokyo Kitsch is an online Japanese retailer that is providing avid readers the chance to mark the pages of their favorite books using bookmarks shaped to look like popular snacks. The three dimensional bookmarks are designed to replicate realistic food items, to make it look as though the food is caught between the pages of a novel.

Japan is often known for its kitschy accessory designs, and these bookmarks keep in this theme. While many bookmarks tend to be flat as to not obstruct the pages in the book, these designs are more dimensional to look realistically like food. Colorful and texturized plastic materials are used to replicate the elements of the food. The page markers are shaped like slabs of bacon, fried eggs, pancakes and even seaweed.
