Sanrio Temari Sushi Bento

Sanrio Temari Sushi Bento (4)A special Sanrio Temari Sushi Bento.

So happy that my bento idea worked!  Aren’t these Sanrio temarizushi cute! heheheh.

I had wanted to make some kawaii character temari sushi (or temarizushi).

Temari means thread balls, and temarizushi simply means making small ball-shaped sushi. These temarizushi are usually served during happy occasions and are so perfect for parties for their small serving sizes.

As I don’t eat a lot of raw meat, I used a mix of different seafood and Japanese ingredients/toppings for my sushi.

This bento would be better for cooler weathers, since there are some raw ingredients involved. So if you plan to make temari bento, try to stay indoors or in aircon conditions to keep the sushi fresh.

This Sanrio Temari Sushi Bento was so super fun to make! I can’t wait to make more other character temarizushi!

  • Edamame temari sushi rice ball

Sanrio Temari Sushi Bento (3) I packed today’s bento in one of my favourite boxes, the clear acrylic bento box from Primitive 陶舎花*花.

I think the transparent look of the box was perfect for this colourful temari sushi bento. It provided a bright clean base to present these Sanrio temarizushi pieces.

I guess today’s bento can be considered as both a Japanese bento and a character bento (decoben). :) I am looking forward to eating this sushi bento lunch!
