We would like to welcome you to our new shop in our home and the historical capital of Japan, Kyoto. We opened this, our very first "brick and mortar" shop, in Kyoto on April 7th, 2012. If you are traveling here or live here, come and see our new and beautiful building, full of bento boxes and accessories of all kinds.


The Bento&co shop is the first shop of its kind in Japan. Up until then, there had been shop that specialized in bento, which was quite surprising since Japan is the home of bento! We were covered by many Japanese media outlets due to this fact.



We are located at o Nakagyo-Ku, Rokkaku Dori FuyachoHigashi Iru Yaoya-cho 117, Kyoto Japan 604-0872. In Japanese the address is 604-8072 京都府京都市中京区六角通麩屋町東入八百屋町117.

We are open daily from 12:00 to 19:00.

If you are visiting Kyoto, to find us easily you can print the map from Google Maps. We are in the city center--it is easy to find us. 

We are located just in front of 7/11 convince store. (You can withdraw money with foreign cards here, which is not the case at most ATMs in Japan.)



The area is a great place to go shopping since we are just next to the shopping arcades, Teramachi and Shinkyogoku. We are just a around the corner!
If you are coming to Japan, we recommend checking out Japan Experience, a partner in our annual International Bento Contest. Japan Experience offers vacation houses for rent in Kyoto and Tokyo (a great experience at a great rate) as well as simplified way to purchase the Japan Rail Pass.
