beautiful bento boxes

Bringing new meaning to food as an art, busy Japanese hobbyists have been creating these bento boxes for years. Made from all food ingredients, some lucky kid gets to take these beauties to lunch and show off how adorable his food is. I’m not sure, eating something this cute is like eating baby seal.

Now it’s not just for lunch, people have expanded bento boxes into an art – doing caricatures of actors, scenes from ads, even Ukiyo-e scenes. Woah, check out all these galleries:
