The Japanese people often take their home made “bento”, take out lunch boxes, to school, work and picnics.
A “bento” usually made with rice, fish, meat, and vegetables, and it is nutritiously balanced.
And since the Japanese people care if their “bento” look pretty, making “bento” is like an art project.
There are various “bento” accessories sold at stores. You can sometimes find a whole rack with bento stuff!
The mothers of kindergarten children love to make “kyara-ben (character bento)”, for their children.
“Kyara-ben” food is decorated anime/manga characters, or animals.
There are even “kyara-ben” contests, where mothers make incredibly cute food art to complete.
Not only do people make “bento” at home but “Bento” are also available at many places such as bento stores, convenience stores, supermarkets, department stores, and train stations.
