When it comes to lunchboxes, they do not get much better than an authentic Japanese lunch box. Bento boxes are compartmentalized lunch boxes that are great for to-go meals, home-packed lunches and picnics. They can be filled with a number of delicious Japanese meals, such as sushizume – packed sushi – makunouchi – broiled salmon, pickled ume and eggs – or simple bento consisting of soy-flavored nori or cooked chicken on rice.
While bento boxes are designed for Japanese takeout and packed Japanese lunches, you can use your bento box to hold just about anything, from appetizers to individually packed chips and sandwiches. No matter what you use it for, these black lacquered shokado and other style bento boxes are sure to please.
