Japan is a land of "kawaii", aka cuteness. From anime, to the way some people dress, to ordinary things such as road signs, the culture of "kawaii" is everywhere. Foods in particular can be too cute to eat in Japan. It's pretty common for moms to prepare cute lunchboxes or decorated rice balls for their kids to bring to school.
I fondly remember my grandma making me cute octopus shaped sausages when I was little.
Below are some of my favorite cute Japanese foods. Which one looks too good to eat?
Personally, if I were served the Calvin & Hobbes Lunchbox I wouldn't be able to eat it.
