Bonjour. こんにちは。Hello.

This is the personal site of Makiko Itoh 伊藤牧子. the creator of Just Hungry, a site (mostly) about Japanese cooking, and Just Bento, all about bento box meals. I am the author of The Just Bento Cookbook 2: Make Ahead, Easy, Healthy Lunches To Go and The Just Bento Cookbook: Everyday Lunches To Go.


I am still writing quite a bit. Because it's much easier these days to write on my phone, that's what I do. And most of my words end up on Facebook.

Which is fine, for people on Facebook. But apparently there are tons of people out there who do not use Facebook for various reasons. For them, going on Facebook is a pain, so they avoid it.

Which means I need to put my words elsewhere to get to the non-Facebook people. But would the Facebook people be less inclined to read my words if I don't post on Facebook, and just link to my stuff elsewhere? I don't know.

About, updated

I have updated my About page a bit. (November 2018.)
