How do I ask for Self Heating Bentos? 2017/4/15 23:08
Hi All,
My plan is to purchase a beef bento at Matsuri Ekibenya in Tokyo Station. I would like to purchase the self heating ones. How would I ask for them in Japanese? Thanks.

Kanetsu-shiki ekiben is the term for these.

Store staff knows word "heating" in EN no worry,
but Matsuri is always crowded, so it is quicker to find it yourself.

You can see the image of "how to" also words on packages with a string.

This is not "beef(牛/牛肉)" one but you can see about real temp of heating.

In above vid, although it was opening for showing heating system, but please warm it without opening.
44℃(not "F") is the same hottest onsen water, so please don’t touch until heating over about 5 min.

Now, Matsuri web providing regular ekibens lists in EN.

Thank you, everyone. This was very helpful. I've printed this thread out and will take it with me.

I'm curious about the Rescue Foods Beef Bowl. Where would I buy that? I can take a few of those back home with me for souvenirs.

You mean those?

You'd have to go to shops that sell "emergency food/supplies" - I am not sure, but some large supermarkets, Tokyu Hands, or maybe Don Quijote (discount shops).

Yes, that was what I was referring to. I'm going to post another question on where to find supermarkets. I've only gone to one near Tokyo Dome many years ago and if I remember correctly, it was small in size.
Thanks, AK.

Wait about 30 min after heating liquid/加熱剤(kanetsu-zai) injected.

And if you like "beef" or "bowl(丼:don/donburi)" food,
you can find easier a lot of "retort pack" at regular supermarket(grocery store).

(without "rice" and heating function pack)
These are all "curry" :)

Amazon sales over 400 products now.

And how about "Space food/宇宙食:Uchuu shoku"?

Sales location are limited, maybe you can get "NASA" one in yr country easier.
