Japanese School Lunch

Have you ever read  'Never Seconds', a blog run by 9-year-old school girl, documents her school lunch everyday with the photos.
I's worth reading since I have interested in kid's meal, healthy food and school lunch. I can see what is really happening in other country.

This week's guest blogger was a Japanese guy 'doni' who is blogging about Japanese school lunch from tokyo.

He uploaded many photos of Japanese School Lunch. it's all looks delicious! and now I want to back to school!!! (well I'm too old..)
I really enjoyed his blog posts. and if you have interested in Japanese school Lunch, you can read it here.
