My kids wake up so early in the morning in summer in Tokyo, that they are ready for lunch by 10am!
Honestly the sun rises in Tokyo at about 4am in summer. And as soon as the sun comes up, my 4 year old’s eyes pop open and he is ready to start the day. He has been like that ever since he was born.
So this little post is about our morning trip to the park. I decided to quickly make a bento before we left, so they could enjoy eating and relaxing at the park without me worrying about them getting hungry.
This is the beauty of Japanese bento boxes and “Tsukurioki” – it trains you to prepare food in the fridge that can be used little by little over a 3-4 day period. So you always have something on hand to quickly pop in a bento box and make it colorful and beautiful as well as nutritious for your family.
Make sure you check my other posts about “Tsukurioki”. It is HUGELY popular here in Japan and ALL the bookstores are full with Tsukurioki cookbooks. It’s fantastic!
