Experience a Japanese bento essential that is the "Ojyu bako", or picnic bento box.
Introducing the Hanamaru picnic bento box - a perfect combination of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and modern elegance. Featuring a three tiered design with a deep brown finish, this bento box has been beautifully patterned with bellflower, sakura and Japanese plum flowers partnered with maple leaves. They represent the spring and autumn seasons in Japan. These symbols have been expertly crafted with gold 'Maki-e', which is a Japanese lacquer decoration technique using metal powder.
This bento box will surely turn heads when hosting any event at home or otherwise. The compact design is the perfect size for presenting beautifully made sushi, entrees or desserts. Or use as a charcuterie box. Each layer comes with an inner detachable lid so you can conveniently protect and store the food as needed. Entertain with the full 3 layers, or serve each individually during a meal. And each bento box comes with an elastic lunch band to secure it when on the move so you can even impress outdoors!
