We are delighted to introduce this beautifully hand-crafted Obento-bako, which was originally designed and made for a craftsman’s family member.  The wood is sourced locally in Japan and you will appreciate its lightness and delicate finish.

This Obento-bako (Japanese lunch-box) is crafted from ‘harigiri wood’ known as ‘sen’. Traditionally ‘harigiri’ has been used to make bento-boxes. You can choose either boxes finished in red or black.

This lunch-box is skilfully hand made by experienced artisans in Yamanaka, Ishikawa prefecture. Yamanaka region is well known for its lacquer products and has over 500 years of history.

Each carefully selected piece of wood is left to mature for 3 months before artisans precisely carve each bento-box and lid from a single piece of wood. Each box and lid are then lacquered inside and out until a perfect finish is achieved.

This bento box is made out of breathing wood, which absorbs excess moisture, preventing food from becoming too dry or soggy and keeping food such as rice and sandwiches fresher for longer. The corners of the insides are slightly carved to make it easier to wash.

The item will be delivered in a classic Japan-style box.

Gentle hand washing and quickly drying with a soft cloth are strongly recommended as this is not dishwasher safe. With a proper care, these quality bento-boxes are often used for generations.
