Since my previous post about kyushoku (Japanese school lunch) is one of the most popular on this blog, I thought I’d make a part two.
It’s the end of term, and as the students no longer have to come to school until the end of Spring Break due to the government trying to contain the spread of the coronavirus – teachers now have to bring our own lunch in every day. (I’m currently working from home.)
So I figured it’s as good a time as any to reflect on some of the lunches I’ve had since my last post.
As before, meals always come with a carb – usually rice, but sometimes noodles or bread. I find it difficult to eat rice every day, so I often forgo this – but you can see it in some of these photos.
Fridays at my school is also bring-your-own-rice day, but I’m lazy and usually forget anyway!
And as a bonus – the special Japanese New Years themed lunch box we got at the start of the school year. MAN, this was delicious:
Honestly, I’ve had worse bentos in Japanese restaurants back home!
Let me know what you think. I know kyushoku is very different to the school lunches I remember in the UK. How about from your country?

Lovely photos! You took so many! Take care with the whole corona virus scare. The teachers at my school are actually happy about it though…more time to lesson plan! 😛
Thank you so much for commenting – this is actually my first comment I’ve received on this blog! 🙂 Yeah, it became a habit for me to take photos every day – especially in my JHS where I can just eat in the teachers’ room. Please take care too!!
