Check Japanese parents' everyday struggle to make a "Charaben"!
Jun 30 2015
Traditionally, Japanese have enjoyed "Bento," the lunch box.
The handmade ones are especially appreciated at the situations like family gatherings or school events such as sports days or excursions.
What has become extremely popular these days is "Charaben" - a lunchbox designed after popular Anime characters, handmade by mothers (sometimes fathers) for children.
Doraemon, Disney and Pokemon characters... the bento is more like a canvas than a box of lunch. Nothing is impossible for creative moms/ dads!
Why don't you try making one?
