No matter where you go, hospital food is one thing that seems to have a horrible reputation. But a woman who just recently gave birth in Japan, shared 12 meals that she was served during her stay in the maternity ward. Frankly, the food looks much better and tastier than in half the restaurants I’ve been to. Food presentation is crucial in the Land of the Rising Sun, so hospitals also take this cultural tradition pretty seriously.
The woman’s post went viral, and internet users around the world now want to give birth in Japan… including men. We are not so sure if these spreads are offered to people in the hospital for other reasons, but if you are in Tokyo and want to take a “surprise” injury to find out, please let us know how it goes.
