In order to give you a taste of prison life, restauranters in Japan created the 'Prison Cafeteria.' The only food served at the cafeteria is what real prisoners would eat. Based off grub from the Abashirishi prison, the food at Prison Cafeteria uses genuine recipes. The only exception is the addition of miso soup, which replaces the tea served in prison.

The restaurant is nested in Abashiri, Hokkaido and is open to everyone. Full meal sets are offered which mimic an entire prisoner lunch. Surprisingly, the meals look pretty good. One set comes with rice, fried mackerel pike, radish, a noodle salad and miso soup.

Each meal was also constructed to be nutritious. Since the Japanase government has on obligation to keep its prisoners healthy, the meals contain dietary fibers and necessary daily nutrients.
