Mountain Day Japan Bento Lunches

山の日弁当

This year on August 11, Japan has a new national holiday. Mountain Day (山の日) is a day to appreciate mountains. Growing up I spent a lot of time in the Adirondack Mountains since my family has a summer home there. I am all for appreciating mountains so I decided to create two lunches in celebration of this new holiday. I am sharing this on August 10 because tomorrow morning in the U.S., Mountain Day in Japan will be mostly over.

Container: LunchBots Trio

Top Left: Mountain – cream cheese sandwich on toasted wheat bread, snow peas

Top Right: Broccoli and carrots with homemade bento picks (used shrink plastic and my oven to make them) my neighbor made them with me

Bottom: Strawberries and blueberries

Yama no hi mashed potato lunch

I don’t like the way this looks as it looks like a blob of mashed potatoes but it was delicious to eat so I am sharing it. The blobs are supposed to be mountains.

Container: Book Bento Box

Contents: Broccoli and cheese mashed potatoes, toasted walnuts, homemade bento pick (used shrink plastic and my oven to make them) my neighbor made them with me, raspberries, blackberries, pineapple
