So today i have decided to watch my Spirited Away because it's such a good movie, and love the whole thing. But what i never really questioned myself is what the father is eating here:

Like what is that sac-like thing he's eating? I recognize all the other foods here, but this one caught my eye this time. (Why i noticed this now when I've seen this like a thousand times.) So does anyone know what it is? Just curious....

That is a rotted cantaloupe. You can see the juices oozing out of the bottom. Actually, I'm not sure what the heck that is. I always assumed it was a strangely-drawn chicken.

Isn't that bundled soba noodles or something?

This makes so much more sense than a rotted cantaloupe.

Oh ... I'm not sure. I always thought, judging by the shape of them on the plate/being lifted up it was some sort of giant dumpling.
Probably not ... This movie always makes me hungry ...

Haha, it always had the opposite effect on me. I don't want to turn into a piggy! ( ´(00)`)

It's probably a type of Tsukemono. Some of the long term ones can look like that.

Miyazaki movies always make the simplest food look delicious.
