Our family is a big Hayao Miyazaki fan. “My Neighbor Totoro” is one of our all time favorite movie. I’ve always wanted to make a “Totoro” inspired bento, but just the thought of it intimidates me. After searching the web and finding a step by step tutorial, It finally got me excited to try.

This is going to be the first my Totoro Bento series. Here is my take on Totoro onigiri. I borrowed my daughter’s plush Totoro collection (Totoro, Chu Totoro, Chibi Totoro and Susu-watari) for this post.
