You are looking at the winner of the Character Bento (Lunchbox) Contest, which was held in Tokyo yesterday. The lunch was titled: Even Rainy Days Are Fun!—timely, since rainy season’s about to kick off. As you can see, creativity thrives on this lunch plate, which features sausages cut like flowers and a red pepper designed to look like an umbrella.
The lunch was judged not only on aesthetics but on nutritional value. It’s true—not only does this look pretty, it looks healthy! Except I’d feel really bad about eating something that clearly took so much time to design…actually, I take that back. I’m hungry, and I’ll eat anything right now.
