Lessons Totoro Charaben Class March 20, 2020 / by Junko Today we had another fun Totoro bento lesson with a family from Switzerland living in Tokyo for a few months and 2 gentlemen visiting from Singapore! One group was vegetarian, the other not, so we split up in 2 groups to make the side dishes. Everyone concentrated so hard, they forgot to breathe but did a great job with their Totoro!! We heard a lot “kawaii!!” today😊 They said their bento boxes were too cute to eat, but all the bento boxes were empty at the end!! Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :) Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature. Lately, I enjoy traveling to places I’ve never been and dancing Salsa/Kizomba there. Always a traveler at heart. Freelance web/graphic designer. Coffee & chocolate addict.
