Have you heard of Bento boxes ? no ? well let me explain what a Bento Box is, essentially, a lunch box. But instead of being a thing for children alone. bento boxes are designed for people of all ages. The Bento is something that is seeped in history, used for people to carry food around in a presentable manner without taking up too much space the Bento keeps its popularity today due to its convenience factor. Placing a small box in your bag that is segmented into 3 taller sections rather than one wide section means they can different parts to their meal. One for rice, one for the main and one for sweet foods. The Bento is a great way for the Japanese to save money, time and, space as it means they can cook a large meal at night and save portion for their lunch the next day.
However up until recently the major problem with the traditional Bento box is that what you put in it will inevitably go cold. Which is not great if you have made something really tasty that you want to eat. But this problem is no more! As recently there has been a mass production of heat retention Bento boxes. These genius devices much like a thermos for soup keeps your food at the same temperature it was at the time you put the food in and put the lid on. Which obviously has become extremely popular extremely fast, as now the Japanese can enjoy their favorite foods, the way they were intended to be.
If you are coming to Japan or you are a long term resident make sure that you pick one these up. They come in all shapes, sizes and even, different designs and patterns which means you can have a Bento that is far more personal than just a regular lunch box, with the added benefit that you food will stay warmer for much, much longer.
