About the Day

Students will be shown some photos and You Tube clips about Obento. Words like いただきます, ごちそうさま、おいしい will be taught and practised. Then, in groups of two or three with a student or students from their own school, students will make an obento. They will be given a small box filled with rice and they will need to use a variety of Japanese foods to design an obento.

Students will show their final product to the judges. Prizes will be given for most creative and reflective of Japanese culture as well as balance of nutrition.

All students will receive a certificate of participation.

The Obento making will be done in two groups; while not in the kitchen,
students will be participating in Japanese cultural activities under




Free but only open to JLTASA Members.


8 students maximum per school

We have places for 56 students each session so we are asking you at this stage to limit your group to 8, but please indicate on the registration form if there are any requests for more as some schools may send less students.
