This is the first time I made a Catbus bento, although I have made several Totoro bentos previously. The Catbus (Nekobasu) from the film My Neighbor Totoro is a large grinning cat whose hollow body serves as a bus. The Catbus is often used to transport Totoro.
In this bento I have made the Catbus using rice mixed with teriyaki sauce for a slightly sweet flavour. The details are done with cheese and nori. I made Oh-Totoro using mashed potato, and the soot sprites Makkuro Kurosuke were made using sauteed shitake mushrooms.
