Bento, as you may know, is the Japanese version of the personal box lunch. Personally, I love Bento boxes and often order them in Japanese restaruants-- but who knew that Japanese housewives could be so creative with them? I found this picture on a blog called Asian Offbeat which is exactly what it says it is. Makes me want to be a kid again and carry my lunch to school. My fave is the Panda.
We are talking some amazing lunchboxes-- hail Bento.
