She first sketches the design on a piece of paper and then transfers it onto the rice bed. The dark black is through the usage of bamboo charcoal.

The artist has always been interested in making intricate bento box art. She started making one for her son except bento art wasn’t in style back then and a quick meal is more preferable. But now her son is all grown up, and she has all the time in the world to make nice bento boxes for her husband.

She started sharing her bento box on Instagram and Twitter for fun, they eventually went viral. Some institutions even asked her to create bento boxes for various events. The Yamaguchi Prefectural Art Museum requested her to make a special Reiko elephant bento box for the recent “Ryusei Kishida Exhibition”.
