My parents have been visiting me in Japan for the last couple of weeks, and we've been having a lovely time exploring some of the areas around Sendai that I like the most. Obviously, that includes several of my favourite restaurants, but we spent several days in the countryside, and I got to introduce them to bentos! My Dad was very dubious about the idea of decorating your food, but even he couldn't resist a smile when he saw some of the cute lunches I made for him, and my Mum was a convert from the start!
