it's up to your imagination

There are so many ways to use a picnic bento box. Impress with an elaborate arrangement of Japanese (or any) cuisine, or take it easy with some entrees and fruit. Either way, the Hanamaru picnic bento boxes will create a focal point for your food creations.

handcrafted with 'maki-e'

'Maki-e' is a traditional Japanese lacquer decoration technique in which beautiful patterns are drawn on lacquerware with metal powder such as gold or silver.

The decorations on the Hanamaru picnic bento boxes have been skillfully handcrafted and represent plant symbols of Japanese spring and autumn - cherry blossum, bellflower and plum flowers, and maple leaves.

Use 1, 2 or 3 layers

Each layer of the 3 tier Hanamaru picnic bento box is a separate item, so you can use 1, 2 or 3 layers depending on your needs. Plus each layer comes with a separate lid to protect and store your food.

smooth, durable and dishwasher safe

The Hanamaru picnic bento boxes have been hand coated with a urethane layer followed by a total of 34 applications of Maki-e by skilled 'shokunin' (craftsperson). Melding Japanese tradition and everyday convenience, they are also dishwasher safe to cap a great dining experience.
