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. My new site about Japanese culture and society is called Just My Japan. 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 have a Patreon.

Satoshi Kon's last words

Satoshi Kon, the director of anime movies Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millenium Actress and Paprika, as well as the TV series Paranoia Agent, died on Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 at the age of 46. (NY Times obituary.) He left behind a rambling but extraordinary document, which his family has posthumously posted on his blog.

Major updates and new site

I have finally updated Just Hungry and Just Bento to new mobile-first designs, so they don't look awful on smartphones and the like. Actually Just Hungry was already more or less fixed, but Just Bento was not. Now it is.

I have also started a new site about Japan, called Just My Japan.

All three sites are now running over SSL.

This site is lagging behind, but it's not a high priority anyway since it is so rarely updated. ^_^
