I thought I would pop in and introduce myself.

I am from the UK and have just come across this site and I think it is amazing. It is full of really useful information.

I am hoping to start using Bento to make lunches to take to work and to help me lose weight. I am doing weight watchers and I have a few stone to lose so I am hoping this will also help towards that goal.

I have loved all things Japanese for quite some time and I was first introduced to anime when I was at school by a friend. My obsession with all things Japanese has really spread from there and now I would like to try to use more Japanese food influences in my day to day life.

Don't you just love those friends who introduce you to the most facinating cultures? That's how I got here, too.

Hello, fellow UK dweller! Glad to hear you're trying to learn more about Japanese cuisine; this is definitely the place to do it! Your story sounds a bit like mine - I first got interested in anime when I was in college (about 10 years ago - gulp!), and then my Japanophilia just went from there - learning the language, trying out recipes...still yet to visit Japan though. One day...
