Ladies' Bento Box Sets - Made in Japan

Durable, precision quality and 100% practical.  That's what makes these 630ml+ ladies bento box sets my favourite.

... Did I mention feminine and cute??

"Flower River" features a very slightly translucent jelly-pink upper and lower box and divider, and a cherry blossom coloured (very pale pink) external (upper) lid with a playful flower design.  Your bento was never so exciting as when it came in a colour which seemed to call "eat me!"

"Forest Color", with its nature-loving leafy design, has light yellow-green upper and lower boxes and end clips, with both external (upper) lid and internal lid in pure white.  Lunch is a time to relax, and if you can't be physically surrounded by nature, you may as well have a bento box which lets you imagine it.

Each set includes:
  • Lower box with internal lid which doubles as the chopstick compartment,
  • Upper box with an airtight external lid with clips which snap shut on the ends of the lower box, holding it all tightly together,
  • Internal divider - for the upper box, to keep your okazu separate and perfect
  • A pair of matching 16.5cm chopsticks
  • Matching lunch bag

The silicone seal in the external (upper) lid is excellent quality (passed my water leak test - details below) and easily removable for washing.

Ladies' Two-tier Bento Box Set with Chopsticks and Bag


 I tested the upper lid seal by half-filling the upper box with water and shaking it upside-down. Completely dry.  It didn't leak even a drop, which is more than I can say for a similar non-made-in-Japan bento box I tested.  While I can't guarantee that the seal of your box won't leak under any circumstances - and I don't physically test every box I send out - so far for me, the upper compartment of this bento box has been 100% leak-free!
