Creative Bento Lunches

Bento is an art form for packing lunches in the Japanese culture. When you think of lunchboxes, you're probably thinking of the old brown paper bag or the cute cartoon character metal or plastic lunchboxes children take to school with them.

The Japanese have taken the act of packing a lunch or meal to a whole different level of sophistication and fun!

What makes them fun is that these boxes come in many creative styles. The compartments can be the same size or different sizes and the Bento Boxes themselves can be made from different materials and they come in many different themes and shapes from kitty shaped hello kitty box to a round shaped lunch box with two layers.
