It doesn't take up much storage space and it's light, easy to wash and a convenient and quick way to make onigirazu.
It's amazing. It may look small but if you use Japanese short grain rice, this box will fill you up decently.
This is a great bento box. A perfect accessory for a picnic
This is very sleek and cute, so simple yet very elegant, elevates my lunch experience every time! I love putting desserts on this as well.
holds way more than you think, material is so nice and easily washable, will definitely get more maybe for christmas 💖💖
really handy chopsticks, great with the case and the band to keep it safe and secure
Beautiful and functional
Bought this originally as a gift for my Husband and he gets so many compliments about it at work!
It fits a fantastic amount of food and the compartments are really good. Just a beautifully made, quality product.
Have now bought more for Christmas presents!
I bought the white version some time back and bought this blue one as a gift. This bottle is really compact and keeps my hot coffee hot for a very long time. I was surprised it can fit a large coffee even though it looks so compact. I'm sure my friend will like it.
Bought this a few weeks ago.
It is beautiful and very compact.
Great quality product. Love it
Bought this as a Xmas present for a cat-loving friend. She's going to love it, it's super cute while being suitable for an adult. Also, very quick on posting my order. Thanks 👍
Absolutely love the colours and scene of this furoshiki. I think I might display it rather than use it!
The colour of this is gorgeous. It's a lovely shade of rust red (for lack of a better description) which is very subtle and elegant. It's a good size thermos, which holds a good amount of miso. What impressed me is how warm (HOT!) it kept my miso. Even with the lid off, my miso was still hot after an hour! Really impressive. Easy to clean and disassembles easily. Good size. Lovely all over. Here is a picture with my bento. Great delivery and service from Ken! Thank you very much!
This is a really nice bento. It has a lot of space - can fit a very generous meal for one with plenty of room for salad, vegetables, rice and some chicken! See my pictures! The colour is really colourful and bright, Fits together very well, and the silicon seal for the top section is good snug fit. It collapses well for transport. I purchased it with the lovely Sakura Red Chopstick case and the Ohashi Collection Chopsticks - Shunjyuu. At the last minute I added the Hama Monyo Miyabi Sakura Furoshiki (Ken kindly let me added it my order after I submitted it). And I complemented it with a Red Thermos for my miso. Delivery was perfect. Unboxing was a delight - the kind of packaging I would see when I would go shopping in Tokyo. Thank you Ken for wonderful service and a lovely bento!
These authentic Japanese products are stunning. I purchased two lunchboxes and two furoshiki. They arrived within a week and were beautifully and carefully packed. I bought them as Christmas presents and I'm certain they will be happily received. I think the items were fairly priced for the exceptional quality. I will keep this company on my list for future purchases.
Allday Drink Bottles
These modern and stylish insulated drink bottles will even fit in your back pocket, to give you a hot or cold refreshment all day, everyday. Holding 360ml (the size of a soft drink can), they have both form and function.
We are excited to offer a range of bottles from thermo mug, a premium Japanese brand.
Japanese-style bento boxES
A convenient way to enjoy your meals
Made In Japan
Our bento boxes are sourced from Japan. They have been designed and crafted with high quality materials by skilled 'shokunin' (craftsmen), with most designs finished by hand painting/coating. This results in slight variations of the aesthetic of each and every bento box, adding a touch of uniqueness, and resulting in beautiful and reliable items that you have come to expect from the land of the rising sun.
Perfect for a housewarming or a gift
Use our picnic bento boxes to bring food to a housewarming, or choose one of the Wagara bento boxes (Japanese patterned cloth infused into the lid) as a birthday or mother's day gift or other special occasion. Like beautiful silverware, elevate your bento box from just a storage container to a gorgeous meal experience.
Stylish And Practical Designs
Dress up your food with elegant bento boxes and build the anticipation of a delightful meal. Japanese bento boxes stem from aspects of simplicity and practicality of Japanese culture. They are appropriate for any kind of cuisine. Prepare pasta, store a rice dish or just fill them with vege sticks. We are sure that there is a suitable bento box for your bento life!
Using disposable containers or plastic bags to pack a meal each time creates more waste and leaves a lasting negative impact on the environment. Using reusable bento boxes and containers are a great way to do our little bit for our Earth.
A little more about our range of Japanese bento lunch boxes
Bringing you a selection of elegant and functional Japanese style bento boxes and other accessories, sourced and made in Japan.
A ‘bento’ is a Japanese lunchbox, often packing multiple kinds of food into a small, compact space while balancing variety and nutrition at the same time.
Bento lunches are prepared to offer a complete meal, presenting a whole range of tastes and textures –even food groups. From rice to meat, fish, and fresh or pickled vegetables, the Japanese bento lunch box is certainly a unique way to enjoy food in an immersive manner.
The Japanese are well-known for their skills in working with space, and our bento lunch boxes are a reflection of this cultural trait. Traditionally-arranged bentos use each section of the container to pack food into tight rectangular or square shapes. From there, they can be used at school or work, perfect for home, play or office.
We offer many designs of Japanese bento boxes
In Japan, there are many types of bentos one can choose from. These containers are divided into sections to hold different kinds of food. Below are our collection of Japanese designed and elegant bento boxes that we offer in our online store, which you can use for almost any type of bento.
Basic Bento Box Series
Our basic bento box series is designed for those who prefer a simple and non-assuming yet elegant design. These also include our standard sizes. These boxes feature a section for rice, and smaller sections for a variety of other food groups.
Picnic Box Series
Our picnic boxes, also known as ‘ojyu’, are made for sharing with others. These layered designs are slightly larger, making them ideal for picnics, barbeques, and social outings and gatherings. They’re often used for onigiri and even maki-zushi sushi rolls, and are hugely popular during the cherry blossom viewing season in Japan.
Sakura Mokume Series
Our Sakura Mokume collection is beautifully designed with Sakura cherry blossom flowers drifting across a wood-grain backdrop. These don’t look like your typical bento when you first look at them, but that’s why they elevate your meal experience!
Wagara literally means ‘Japanese patterns’. Our Wagara series have Japanese patterned cloths infused into the lid during the manufacturing process, resulting in beautiful creations that are sure to elevate your experience.
As real cloth is used, each bento box is unique as it will have different positioning of the patterns. Each pattern has a spiritual meaning based on Japan's deep history.
Nuri Wappa Series
Each bento box in the Nuri Wappa series is hand-painted to provide an elegant finish for a traditional Japanese bento look. The design is based on ‘Magewappa’, which is a traditional Japanese craft of bending wood using steam or boiled water.
