Making Totoro Bento

skullcandy asked: hi~! the Anpanman bento is cute. i was wondering which cutter was used for the stars because i really like that particular star shape haha

I think any star cookie-cutter will work. It’s a pretty standard shape.

I don’t know where you live, but I think something like this would work fine:

You are just cutting a piece of pre-sliced cheese, so you could even do it with a knife (if you are confident you can cut a star out with a knife ^^; )

I spent longer than usual on backgrounds…Probably because the article is all about places you can go to in Tokyo where you can experience buildings from the past!*Old buildings are rare because of 2 large events that destroyed a good portion of historical Tokyo. 1. The Great Kanto Earthquake 2. The WW2 Firebombing http://wanderlust-japan.com/tokyo-historical-architecture/
