Will be heading back to Japan in Nov, am looking forward! Inspired by my Fuji san tissue holder that I have in my bag, I decided to make this Fuji san Bento.
Its so simple, and cute too right?
Since I am planning to go back during the autumn season, I also prepared a more autumn feel bento today.
To make Fuji san onigiri in this bento, I coloured the rice blue with some blue pea flower extract. Shape tightly into a compact triangular shape for the rice balls, and with the addition of sushi seaweed cut freehand and ham pieces to complete the character.
Its so easy to make!
In line with the autumn feel, I packed in a beautiful autumn nerikiri wagashi, simmered pumpkin with chicken and shiitake mushrooms, tamagoyaki, mizuna vegetables and a cherry tomato.
Packed my Fuji san bento into one of my most prized lacquered magewappa bento box made by Japanese craftsman Yoshinobu Shibata and Masahisa Shibata from the Asakusa Magewappa Store.
