Girl's Day (Hina-Matsuri) Bentos!

Hina Matsuri is "Girl's Day" in Japan and families pray for the happiness and prosperity of their girls and display beautiful Hina sets on step tiered stands.

I love the two egg dolls in the middle and then the side emperor and empress!!

Cucumber, cheese, eggs, and if you believe my translator cherry buttocks (which is tomatoes I am sure!)

Not so much a bento lunch and more like a cake, but a beautiful job done on this food celebration of Girl's Day! Wow, check out the carrot and cucumber arms!


Beautifully done! Both of these bentos have exquisite detail- pink rice, cut out flowers. Very Girl's Day inspired!

For more on the festival, read last year's blog post on Girl's Day!
