Character Bento Making in Kyoto
- Half Day
Today's activity will begin at 09:30. Start the day by traveling to a designated machiya, or traditional Japanese wooden townhouse, where an English-speaking local food instructor will be waiting with all the ingredients and tools necessary for the day's activity. After a brief introduction, begin a three-hour interactive session, learning the ins and outs of cooking and preparing a delicious and artistically-inspired Japanese bento box.

Anything but an average bento box, this beautiful creation is also known as a chara-ben ("kyaraben"), or a character bento. This edible art form takes a traditional bento box and decorates the meal in the form of a famous cartoon character such as Hello Kitty or reshapes it to appear similar to an adorable animal. A popular edible item for many Japanese, this half day course will provide all the skills and means necessary to produce this cute delicacy.

Finish today's activity with a lively conversation over a hearty meal.
