In addition to Bento&co, bento lunch chefs, wagashi artisans, a proprietor of a bento box museum are featured, making this a rewarding watch for anyone interested in traditional Japanese culture and history. 

Founder and CEO Thomas Bertrand, originally from France, shares a bit about the difference between portable lunch culture in France and Japan's distinctive bento culture. 

Our team members were a bit nervous to be filmed as we ate our bento lunches, but it was a fun and rare experience for us. We are grateful to be included in this beautifully made documentary about something we are passionate about--wonderful boxes! Take a watch and comment to let us know what you think.
