Bizzzaro Bento Boxes

I loved Japan and the Bento boxes that had rice, sushi, eggs, and a variety of Japanese food bites.

Bentō is a single-portion takeout meal common in Japanese cuisine.

A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish. Containers range from disposable mass produced to hand crafted lacquer ware. While bento are readily available at convenience stores and bento shops throughout Japan, it is still considered an essential skill of a Japanese housewife to be able to prepare an appealing boxed lunch.

Bento can be very elaborate, aesthetically pleasing cuisine arrangements. Often the food is arranged in such a way as to resemble other objects: dolls, flowers, leaves, and so forth.

Here is a Justin's website with some amusing Bento Boxes. He has a selection of the craziest Bento boxes made by Junko Terashima on his website.
