Osaka – Kyoto Travel and Bento Lunch

Glico Sign Osaka Bento Lunch

Continuing in my 2017 Japan Travel and Bento series I have Osaka and Kyoto. After Niigata, I flew to Osaka. A language partner who lives in Ibaraki City graciously invited me to stay with her and her family for a week.

This bento lunch is my interpretation of the Glico Sign as a quesadilla. I am sorry to say that my “o” looks like an “a”. I thought about re-doing it but decided to keep it as is.

Name Chopsticks

My language partner gave me chopsticks with my name on them! Very special.

Tale of Genji Museum Uji

I went to the Tale of Genji museum because I went to Uji for the day and read the tale in college. The last time I was in Uji, in 1992, the museum did not exist. My favorite part about the museum was the film.

I had the opportunity to have a decorative cooking lesson from my friend’s mother. These carrots were part of the lesson. We also did eggs, shaped omelet, and lotus root.

I love bakeries in Japan. These Koala and Penguin breads were very cute.

    More great photos! I love the one of the little boy in his uniform, hat and bright colored backpack! The lunch did look delicious and the decorative vegetables were really neat.
