Hospital food usually isn’t something that you would put on your Instagram as an appealing image. Although it shouldn’t be the case, having in mind that one must eat well to recover, hospital food is usually something you want to forget as soon as possible.

Yet, “usual” or “ordinary” are not words you would use to describe the hospital food you will be served in Japanese hospitals. One woman recently shared on social media food that was served to her after having labor in one of the Japanese hospitals and the post went viral pretty fast because the image was definitely Instagram worthy.

In the gallery below we have more examples of Japanese hospital food that look and probably taste just amazing shared by Imgur users. Hopefully, this will set a trend that hospitals all over the world will follow.
