Making a basic healthy Japanese bento box for your next lunch is already a creative process but a kyaraben will definitely add a little more fun.

In a kyaraben, the food in your bento can look like cute cartoon characters, animals, or even beautiful plants. Making a kyaraben used to be just a trick to get children excited about eating their bento but it has now turned into an art form where even competitions are held. It’s popularity has actually spread across the globe but there is always room to recruit more kyaraben enthusiasts.

Through our Nagomi Kitchen cooking program, you can learn how to make either a Hello Kitty or Pikachu kyaraben. Please make sure to indicate which kyaraben you would like to make at the time of your booking. You will also learn how to make healthy tofu balls, flowers out of cherry tomatoes, and sunflowers out of small sausages.

Why not have this experience as part of your stay in Japan?

Megumi Kusunoki, (@nagomistation) currently a cooking instructor in Tokyo started Nagomi Kitchen in hopes for people around the world to learn more about real Japanese food. Combining her passion for tourism as a former scuba diving instructor, bus tour guide, and marketing and sales manager for an online guide for tourists coming to Japan, and food, Nagomi Kitchen was born out of a labor of love. She hopes that through Nagomi Kitchen more people will become more familiar with Japanese food and ingredients and be able to incorporate Japanese home cooking into their daily meal.
