Kanji Cheatsheet # Microwave

Japanese microwave


One of the things that I like about Japan is Box lunches (bento).  I have to confess, I hardly remembered the last time I had my Lunch box before coming to Japan, especially homemade ones should be in my primary school days. Here in Japan lunch boxes are very popular among Japanese kids and adults alike in Japan. People take them to work, to school, on picnics, and so on. And the Japanese homemakers and the stores in Japan obviously have poured their hearts and souls in preparing so wonderful and healthy looking bentos that I would feel guilty if I do not heat them up properly and have them at their best.


So here we are  Kanji Cheat Sheet,   Microwave`s Kanji Cheat Sheet that may help you appreciate your wonderful Japanese Bento a little better and easier.
