    This is a Japanese site that has wonderful pictures of Bento and lots of ideas. I know I've posted this before, but I can't find that post.


    icon_biggrin.gif Wow, Akikobay, what a neat bento site. I noticed parts of the page are in English. Is there a way to translate on that page ...or a way to view in English? Thanks for the link!

    Sanrio Chara-ben competition
    Chara-ben originally means "Character Bento", a bento box featuring famous anime/manga characters.
    Sanrio held the chara-ben competition, and the gold chara-benist 2007 went to Madoka who created "Green Kitty".
    Only written in Japanese, but you can find cute bento boxes.

    I know this topic is not too active but I've found some great bento recape websites I wanted to share, thousands of recapes to try. but first did you know bento started out as precooked dried rice samurai carried in little sacks into battle? they would moisen the rice agian to eat it, so they could eat fast out on the feild, if i have my history right and i think i do. icon_smile.gif Then bento went on to bamboo woven boxes filled with oniguri (rice balls) served at tea partys an such.
    Nowadays the bento madness continues with a wide range of boxes from disposable to huge 3 tier famly size boxes but whats inside is still the same. A bento breaks down like this, 4 parts rice or noodels, 3 parts meat dish, 2 parts veggys, and 1 part pickkels or dessert. Wow a hole feast in a box lol. Well theres a bit of info for you, i'll shut up now lolz enjoy the sites.

    heres a recape for umiboshi too if youre intrested and a wikipedia link that gives tons of info about bento

    Well i hope you enjoy the sites sayonara icon_biggrin.gif
