Totoro bread

Before I left for Japan, visiting the Studio Ghibli museum was at the top of my list, but it sounded like such a troublesome procedure to organise tickets that in the end I never made it there. Now I’m back I wish I had. T_T

Anyway, I’m sure these Totoro rolls are as cute as the stuff at the Ghibli museum (although I hear you receive an actual animation cell as part of your admission price when you visit the museum… so cool). They’re from the bento book Waku Waku Kyarakuta No Obento from Kinokuniya.

    Hi Ursuli! Thanks for your comment ^_^
    I loved checking out your blog with your foodie adventures in China!!! 😀

    A Girl Called E, I hope you made it to one of the Studio Ghibli themed stores when you were in Japan, they sell Totoro bentos, chopsticks, fluffy toys, Mei dolls, Cat bus magnets, black fuzzy soot ball keyrings, everything you can imagine in Totoro!

    Karen, aren’t they gorgeous….. and they actually look pretty easy to make?!?! Thanks for commenting and linking to your fab blog!! 😀

    I went to the museum a couple of years ago while on vacation. It was fantastic and I highly recommend it. The museum, gift shop and cafe were all excellent. I came back with two bags full of gifts/souvenirs.
    I avoided the complicated english language ticketing process by having a Japanese friend order the tickets for me (also highly recommended).
