Where to buy bento/lunch box 2007/4/27 17:34
I have just been to Japan, loved it, especially the food. I wanted to buy the bento boxes where you can make your own bento at home, ideally microwaveable. Does anyone know of any online stores which sells them and can deliver to UK. (I couldn't buy any when I was in Japan due to baggage restrictions) Many thanks.

There is a new type of bento box sweeping across America. The bento box featured by laptoplunches is not as traditional as a japanese bento is but still works in the smae way. You can find them at http://www.lunchboxes.com/bento.html or you can go for a more traditional one at

I hope that helps you!

They've recently really expanded their bento selection and it is really cheap! I bought food from them before and they were very reliable, and ordered a bento last week I'm excited about!

I think they're based in the US so their shipping should be cheaper and faster

This is one of my favorite places to shop in San Francisco. Type "bento" into their search box.

Muji does -- they're a Japanese company too. You can buy them online. You can even buy egg frying pans and other Japanese kitchen things.
