Adventures in Bentomaking: Sanrio

Hello Kitty bento boxBento boxes are the Japanese version of lunch boxes. The difference is the greater emphasis on esthetics and creativity in the box itself and especially in its contents. On our side of the pond, we are content to throw a sandwich, a small bag of chips, and maybe a piece of fruit into a plastic bag and call it lunch. Not so in Japan!

Japanese housewives and other bento makers use large and small cookie cutters and punches to make various edible garnishes to be assembled with the food. Some items are prepared in decorative shaped molds. And yes, in Japan and elsewhere, you can get your own Sanrio-licensed Hello Kitty bento boxes, as well as Hello Kitty cookie cutters, punches, molds, and other kitchen utensils.

It’s cherry blossom viewing season in Japan and so my wife wants to make a picnic and go view the cherry blossoms. Then Hello Kitty Hell struck with a link left in the last post that showed photos of various Hello Kitty bento creations…

Hello Kitty Wedding Dress

Even worse than people asking me to be a Hello Kitty wedding planner is the thought that one day I will have to hear about the concrete plans for my own Hello Kitty wedding. I make every attempt not to write anything about Hello Kitty wedding related stuff because it inevitable leads to trouble. When my wife and I got married, her Hello Kitty fanaticism had yet to kick in, and not having a Hello Kitty wedding is something that she feels is missing from her life. Our Hello Kitty wedding would, of course, include a minimum of at least one Hello Kitty wedding dress (it’s common for the bride in Japan to change into three or four different dresses during the wedding ceremony)…

Hello Kitty holding a letter

Yes, you heard that right – the Fakestinian terrorists and their supporters are abusing Hello Kitty, that lovable Japanese cartoon character.

And no, this is not the regular Caturday thread, but rather, a hard news story about enemy propaganda.

I first heard about blogger Toshie in her letter, published at ハーパー政権へ-Blazing Cat Furの要求リスト-, in which she warned of the possibility that a Human Rights Commission may be set up to restrict freedom of expression in Japan. I clicked a link in her letter and left a comment in English on Toshie’s Japanese-language blog.

Toshie replied by email; I was surprised to learn that she was already familiar with 1389 Blog, and that her husband is also a counterjihad blogger (at BlogWrath, on the blogroll at 1389 Blog).

Toshie also mentioned that the Japanese company, Sanrio, was getting ready to open some stores in Israel (see Ynet Money: Hello Kitty making aliyah), but that some left-wing/pro-Palestinian activists calling themselves “The Japanese Information Center on Palestine” had been spreading vicious and false propaganda – including a doctored photo from the Mohammed al Dura hoax – to try to stop Sanrio from opening the stores.

It had never occurred to me that the Palestinians and their supporters were spreading propaganda in Japan. This is part of their boycott/divest/sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel; evidently, the worldwide jihad reaches everywhere these days. So I wrote back suggesting that she write an article, in English, about this matter.

Toshie and her husband immediately got to work on the article, and published it on BlogWrath. Please click the following link, read it all, and check out the funny pictures there as well!
