Today is Children’s Day (こどもの日 Kodomo no Hi) in Japan and its a Japanese national holiday which takes place annually on May 5, the fifth day of the fifth month.
This day used to be known as Boys Day but the japanese government decided it would be changed to celebrate all children [btw there is actually a girl's day in japan but its not a public holiday]
Many families still raise carp-shaped koinobori flags [its used to denote sons so families with just daughters do not tend to raise such flags] which is a tradition of old when it was just Boys Day.
However it has become very associated with children’s day so i present you a cute idea for a children’s day lunch/bento/snack
Happy Children’s Day!

Another roundup of the bentos i made recently
[FYI i only make a bento for the husband once a week which is usually a Thursday. Didnt do it as often these two months sadly as we were both quite busy. He had a few lunch appointments too so didnt need a bento.]

A while ago, the husband and i tried Kua’Aina at a mall we rarely went to [RISE SC]
There are quite a few branches in Tokyo but it was our first time to this branch
Order and Pay at counter before sitting
What we had [avocado burger, pineapple burger]
I really liked the fries! The burger is rather big too! Highly recommended!
