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.]

I was away most of October [Fukuoka and Singapore]
And part of November [Sapporo]
So i only have two bentos to share XD
Each bento features a different type of tamagoyaki XD
With crab stick
and with cheese
Both have to made in a tamagoyaki pan and method is exactly the same as making a normal one.
you just need to place it on the egg mixture prior to the first roll.
See recipe for a basic tamagoyaki here
New Year is slowly approaching!
