Dad Makes Amazing Bento *RERUN
Mr. Sugimoto is a 67-year-old man who lives in Saitama Prefecture, eastern Japan. A year and a half ago, after his wife passed away, he began making bento lunch to take to work, every day. On the weekends, he sits down, cookbook in hand, to plan every bento he will make for the coming week. Every morning, after he cooks his bento, he sends a picture of it to his daughter who lives with her family in a faraway city. His daughter then sends an extremely detailed review of each bento. It is how the aging father who lives alone communicates with his beloved daughter, and the relationship they have is just beautiful.
