It's my favourite Totoro for today's bentos. Just a simple seaweed cut-out for both my boys' lunch and snacks.
Totoro's side view for their lunch.
Bento is filled with rice, teriyaki meatballs, broccoli and strawberries.
Spam sandwiches and strawberries for their snacks.
I layed the seaweed on cheese, and just put it on top of the sandwiches.
I've always wanted to visit Ghibli Museum. When we went to Japan in both 2009 and 2010, we tried to get the tickets at Lawsons upon arrival but they were sold out for the days we were available in Japan. :( This time. I asked someone staying in Japan to help me to purchase the tickets in advance, I don't want to take the risk again.
The bus that takes us to the museum.
You get to exchange your Lawsons ticket for this very cool entrance ticket. :)
Laputa's robot. There's no shots of the interior as photography is not allowed, but this place is a must visit for Miyazaki's fan , you will love it. Apart from all the wonderful exhibits, we also get to watch a very short anime written by Miyazaki called 'Mighty Mouse'. It's very cute, the boys loved it. :)
Straw hat cafe, located inside the museum's compound.
Very long queue at lunch time at the cafe, we decided to grab a snack at a kiosk outside first.
They only sell hot dog buns, but it was very nice. :)
The menu book.
The menu board.
The boys and I ordered 2 plates of curry rice to share, food was very yummy!
Daddy had this bread, it was delicious.
Strawberry cheese was very good too, pardon my limited vocabulary, I think I don't do justice to the food, lol. We could bring home these little flags which they put on top of the food, but the paper flags tore when I reached back home. Sob. :(
And when you wash your hands, you see Jiji on the tap. :)
The museum is located just beside a very lovely park. :)
We spent the rest of our day there. :)
