chara-ben is short for character bento 弁当 (lunchbox).
I find such lunch boxes so pretty that I can’t bear to eat them.
E and I joined efforts to create a chara-ben together!
It was a first for me.
Next time, we’ll try to take into account the nutritional balance of our chara-ben.
Now you may like to pop over to another blog and view the creations of some chara-ben experts.
