A woman who just recently gave birth in a Japanese hospital shared some of the pictures of the food that she had while staying in the maternity ward. And much to everyone’s surprise, the food was very enticing – based on how it was presented.
The unnamed woman stayed in a hospital in Japan for 12 days. During her time there, she took the opportunity to document all the food that they served by picturing them and sharing it on Imgur.
“Omuraisu, macaroni salad, chicken soup, squid rings, fruit, green tea.”
“Salmon with mushroom sauce, soba noodles, rice, eggplant and beef, broccoli, hijiki salad.”
“Sea bream, pasta salad, chicken meatballs, pickled daikon, rice, miso soap, chawan mushi, green tea.”
“Chicken fingers with shredded cabbage salad, bitter melon stir fry, agedashi tofu, carrot salad, rice, miso soup.”
“Mackerel, konbu salad, natto, spinach salad, miso soup, rice, milk, green tea.”

In Japan, the taste of food is as important as how it was presented. They are mostly colorful and the bento meals (lunch boxes) usually come in complete sets, which includes appetizer, side dish, main course, soup, dessert and drinks.
After the post became viral, many people from around the globe now want to give birth in Japan because of how delicious looking their meals are. Interestingly enough, even men want to give it a shot as well.
