Sakura Traditional Japanese Bento 桜の和弁当

In the mood of a traditional bento lunch today, I packed a sakura theme bento. Since I can’t bring actual cherry blossoms to me from Japan, I decided to make myself a sakura bento instead. Heh.

I love the pink color theme in this bento. I made two onigiri rice balls, where I mixed the rice with salmon flakes, sakura flowers and oboro (a type of pink colored minced fish). I then topped it off with a sakura flower. The sakura flowers are in pickled form which I bought from Japan, you can also buy them online.

The sides were a salad side of chicken, cucumber and carrot; and tamagoyaki egg roll, lettuce, wagashi sweet, and a sweet side of sakura bean paste, mini dango balls and sakura mochi.
