One set of 3 furikake design sheets with rabbit, bear, and elephant shapes OR one set of 6 furikake design sheets in heart, bear, bow, star, fish, and rabbit shapes (see following pictures). This is my all-time favorite (see following post to see how I used a furikake design sheet for my husband’s bento lunch today). Great for any seasoning, dried herbs, or go crazy and use it for cinnamon on your pancakes! The possibilities are endless. The shapes are perforated so you can tear them out and either use the shape itself or the punched-out part to make a design on your food. The inside shape can also be used as a food divider.

All of the above items are completely reusable and will last for ages if treated well. Handwash, though, and don’t put them in your dishwasher. Most Japanese households do not have dishwashers (other than mom) so the packages don’t mention whether they are dishwasher-safe or not. I (OK, usually my husband) always handwash all of my bento supplies.
