Bento Box And Bento Making Goods From Japan

Hi!! I’m thrilled to offer you cute bento boxes and bento making items (egg shaper, food cutter, onigiri mold, nori cutter, bento cups and etc) . Every item on our site is hand selected, packaged and shipped from the Japanese countryside like you shopped there yourself. Chosen for an international audience you will find an eclectic collection of items far beyond the typical Hello Kitty gadgets people associate with Japanese retail products.

But Whatever I taste except 4 Pocky..I dont like it! So Im trying to find somethinghere but Im sort of struggled.... So Im asking 4 help.. Im looking 4 something Japanese. Only! And something that will be good to eat cold too. And that dont need to much ingredients and time... I know its robably impossible to find something..but plz! I want to give Japanese. Food a chance!
ARIGATO!

Where to buy in Japan?

Hi~~

We're on a trip to Japan on May (yes... maybe I post this too soon but I'm oh-so-excited about this!! yay!) we're probably going to tokyo and kyoto and somewhere else we are still discussing.

I'd love to know if I can buy bento gear anywhere (i mean combinis) or if there are specific places to buy, like malls or places like that.
By bento gear i mean things different than the ones appearing on on-line shops or e-bay. I'm very sick of anime-decorated or childish bentos, I'd love to buy cute yet "adult" boxes.

Any advice will be very appreciated :D

Thanks in advance!!! *n_n*
