Teru Teru bozu is something Japanese children will make out of white cloth/tissue paper and cotton and hang nearby the window when they wish for sunny weather, which is often before a school picnic day. And nope they are not ghost dolls despite they resemble the ghost dolls made at Halloween. Teru in Japanese means sunshine and bozu is a Budhist monk and literally it means “shine shine monk”, that might explain the bald head ? 🙂
Today bento featuring 2 Teru teru bonzu made out of rice. They both are still apprentice ,therefore they are on duty together to ensure today weather is bright and shinny.
I also stuffed the teru teru bozu with ume inside, and for the side dish a piece of home made chicken katsu, steamed broccoli and baby asparagus, cheese and few raspberries.
