Traditional Bento Boxes from Japan
Japanese bento boxes are a popular way to keep your lunch organised – for adults, kids and fussy eaters alike! They’re divided into handy little sections to keep different types of food separate, making sure you get a fully balanced meal.
You can put all kinds of things in your bento lunch box - from rice to meat, fish, and fresh or pickled vegetables, displaying all of these staples in an appealing, intriguing way. They’re ideal for carrying your lunch to work, school, or even using at home.
Even better, they come in a range of fun, colourful designs and styles. Check out our range below to find your favourite!
Discover our Japanese bento lunch boxes
Traditionally, the Japanese are known for their expertise in using space effectively, and bento lunch boxes incorporate this through the square and rectangular-shaped sections. This attention to detail makes them a highly popular accessory the world over.
You can take your pick from a range of designs, all available through our online store.
Basic Bento Box Series
If you’re new to the word of bento boxes, then you can’t look past our Basic Box Series. With an elegant but minimalistic design, these are perfect for those who prefer to keep things simple.
Picnic Box Series
Also known as ‘ojyu’, our picnic boxes are made for sharing – which makes them ideal for picnics, barbeques, and social gatherings during the cherry blossom season. They’re also slightly bigger, so they can carry more food. With their multi-tiered designs, you can use these as a grazing board for special occasions. You’ll often find they’re used for onigiri and maki-zushi sushi rolls.
Sakura Mokume Series
Designed with Sakura cherry blossom flowers across a wood-grain backdrop, our Sakura Mokume collection of Japanese bento boxes offers a touch of class and sophistication to elevate your meal experience.
With Japanese patterned cloths infused into the lid, our Wagara series of traditional bento boxes make a beautiful gift for a special someone. Wagara means ‘Japanese patterns’, and it’s these traditional patterns that you’ll see across the cloth – each with a unique spiritual meaning based on Japan's deep history.
Nuri Wappa Series
Hand-painted for an elegant finish, our Nuri Wappa series is designed to give a more traditional Japanese bento look. This style is based on ‘Magewappa’, the traditional Japanese craft of bending wood using steam or boiled water.
