Bento Shojin workshop


This year we will also take you back to ancient Japan with our Shojin (temple) bento box. Taste the traditional food that has been eaten in Japan for ages! Tickets can be bought at the Info Desk for €12,50 per person.

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! This food has been known for ages and is still made in temples around Japan. Try this new taste and soon enough you'll 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!
