Kyaraben

Hiya guys!  I’m Neno, and I suck at introductions!  So now that that’s out of the way, I’m going to talk about bento.  Specifically, kyaraben (or charaben), which is short for ‘character bento.’  This is a style of bento box where the ingredients are elaborately arranged to create characters or designs, in order to entertain children and get them to eat their food.
I might not be a child, but I still love these adorable bento boxes.  They come in all shapes and sizes, and are usually very nutritious!  Here are just a few totally awesome ones from Anna the Red.
