Gaijinwife Bentos

In Japan there is a whole bento culture, ranging from five-minute-stuff-left-overs-in-the-bento-box right up to the spend-three-hours-cutting-out-dried-seaweed-and-molding-rice-balls-into-fabulous-shapes kind. At kinder the kids need a bento only a couple of times a year – for the picnic outings. I made the mistake of making a cute character bento (called a kyaraben or キャラ弁) those first few times and now they LOVE them. I also enjoy making them eventhough they are very time consuming fiddly fuckers. This page is a gallary of my bentos and if you want to know more about making them you can visit my randomly updated bento page or like my FB page on the right there.
