This Japanese Artist Makes Incredible Food Art That Are Too Cute To Eat (30 Pics)

Published 2 weeks ago

In the world of culinary artistry, Tomoko Shibata has carved a niche that transforms everyday lunchboxes into enchanting works of art. Known by her Instagram handle, Tomato, Tomoko has captured the hearts of over 143K followers with her meticulously crafted and delightfully adorable lunch creations.

Tomoko’s artistic journey began in her kitchen, where she started creating unique lunchboxes, or “bento,” for her two sons. In Japan, the tradition of preparing bento boxes is well-established, but Tomoko has taken this practice to extraordinary levels. Each of her lunchboxes is a visual feast, depicting famous cartoon characters, seasonal themes like Christmas and Halloween, and an array of charming, imaginative designs.

Tomoko’s creativity is boundless, and her approach to designing these edible masterpieces is both spontaneous and inspired. She reveals, “I often come up with ideas while grocery shopping, but sometimes I start with a motif I want to create and then look for the ingredients. Many of my ideas come to me spontaneously. I also get inspiration from my two sons.” Check out some of her adorable works in the gallery below.
