Jibanyan Charaben

Jibanyan Charaben

I made Jibanyan (from the popular anime Youkai Watch) into a bento.


Cooked white rice
As needed
Ketchup, red deco-furi or similar
As needed
Wiener sausage, ham
A small amount
Sliced cheese
1 slice
Nori seaweed
As needed
Egg crepe
A small amount


1. Add color to the rice with ketchup or similar and make the shape. A little oblong shaped oval is cute.
2. Here are the parts made from the nori seaweed. I cut them by hand, making sure to balance them.
3. Place the eyes on top of the egg crepe and cut the crepe in a circle a little bigger than the nori seaweed. If you don't have a cutter shape you can cut it with kitchen scissors.
4. (Tip!!) To make the big part of the face from cheese, draw on the packet of sliced cheese with a permanent marker and firmly trace with a toothpick.
5. When you remove the film, you'll see a faint outline and can carefully cut out the shape with a toothpick.
6. Here are the parts of the face. Make the nose and mouth with weiner sausage or ham.
7. Once you fix the parts together and place in the bento box, you're finished!

Story Behind this Recipe

Youkai Watch is so popular it's difficult to get hold of any of the commercial goods, so this is a request from my son.
