Kyaraben and Shojin Workshops

Kyaraben or charaben, a shortened form of character bento, is a style of elaborately arranged bento (Japanese boxed lunch) which features food decorated to look like people, characters from popular media, animals, and plants. This year we will host a series of bento workshops where you can make and eat your own cute bento!!

As animecon is the place to introduce Japanese culture we will also host a real Shojin bento workshop! Food that has been known for ages and is still made in temples around Japan. Try this new taste and imagine yourself in a traditional Japanese temple while making and eating this. (it is vegetarian friendly)

Noriko Aoki will host both workshops where you will get a taste of Japan! Keep in mind that you need a seperate ticket for these workshops.
