Halloween Ghost Character Bento

Halloween Ghost Character Bento

Here's a child-sized rice ball ghost for a Halloween-themed bento.


Plain cooked rice
100 g
Your favorite rice seasonings
as needed
Nori seaweed
as needed
as needed
Processed sliced cheese
as needed


1. Add your favorite rice seasonings to plain rice and form an oval ball.
2. Make the eyes, nose, and mouth by cutting out nori seaweed.
3. Make the hat by placing cut-out nori seaweed on processed cheese. The cheese is easier to cut with a toothpick if it's at room temperature.
4. Once the rice is cooled, arrange the nori face parts. Use ketchup to make rosy cheeks.
5. I used glazed carrots to make Jack O'Lanterns. I used a straw edge that I cut and reshaped with a triangular edge as a cutter for its face.
6. I used kamaboko and nori seaweed to make the bats.

Story Behind this Recipe

I recommend this for school field trips since the bento shows up really well in photos.
