Japanese bento with cute octopus shaped sausage, broccoli, grape, tomato, and rice, popular with children.



  1. Make Onigiri and let it cool before packing into the bento box.
  2. Make Octopus Sausages and set aside to let it cool before packing in the bento box. I used two sesame seeds for octopus eyes. :)
  3. Pack tomatoes, grapes and pre-blanched broccoli in the bento box.

  4. Make sure all the foods cool down completely before closing the bento box.
