Woman Gives Birth In Japan, Shows What Food She Was Fed In The Hospital

If there’s one thing that seems to have a horrible reputation no matter where you go, it’s hospital food; bland, colorless, vomit-inducing meals that make the reason you’re there seem bearable in comparison. A woman who recently gave birth in Japan, however, has just shared 12 of the meals she was served during her stay in the maternity ward, and they look tastier than half of the restaurants we’ve ever visited. Food presentation is crucial in the Land of the Rising Sun, and it would appear that even hospitals take this cultural tradition seriously.

Since the woman’s post went viral, users from all over the globe – especially the US – now want to give birth in Japan, including men. We’re not sure if these gourmet spreads are offered to people in the hospital for other reasons, but if you’re in Tokyo and feel like getting a ‘surprise’ injury to find out, let us know how it goes.

3 meals a day so 4 days? That's not terribly long. Sometime people need to to recover. That being said it just looks like food to me with some Asian influences which I find yummy but not noteworthy.
