Chara-ben classes in English

Bento is the term for single-portion boxed meals popular the world over. And chara-ben, short for “character bento,” where the rice and other food items are arranged to resemble characters, are catching on as a culture of the birthplace of manga and anime. WashoCook Co., Ltd., running a school of Japanese cooking in the English language, offers classes called Anime Characters Lunchbox to share the joy of making these chara-ben. The characters range from popular yuru-chara mascots to well-known names in anime. Participants learn how to create an octopus with sausage, flowers with an ultra-thin omelet, and the shape of a face with cutout seaweed and cheese over rice to complete a meal that’s almost too cute to eat. The lessons offer foreigners a change to experience Japanese culture through the national cuisine.
