Hi there!

Have you heard of “bento“? or “obento“?

That is Japanese boxed lunch.

There are many kind of bentos and “hohuku bento” is one of them.

“hohuku” means “revenge” in Japanese.

If you want to know how to write in Kanji the Chinese character we use in Japanese, it is

Summary

Some Japanese wives are sweet enough to make boxed lunch for their husband even they are pissed off at him. However, you may get some messages with cut nori (seaweed) or ugly and bloody figure in the boxed lunch.

Sometimes nori, the seaweed is cut in centipede shape or cockroach shape. But all in all, it is way much better than getting the real ones, right?

If your Japanese is way advance, you can check my Japanese blog sekatomo.com and see if you find any interest ;)!
