Starwars in Japan!
We at Bento and co are incredibly excited for the premiere of the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. Japan is just like us a Star Wars-crazed! Did you know that Japan is the country with the most Star Wars fans? At least if measured by ticket sales in relation to population (￣▽￣)ノ.
Here in Kyoto, the cradle of Japanese culture, this passion takes a lot of interesting expressions that amaze us. Last week as a celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Rimpa school of Japanese art, a masterpiece portraying Star Wars characters was revealed- just look at the amazing artistry - Japan at its best.
Another cool example of a truly Japanese Star Wars product is these Tenugui, just look at the prints!
Tenugui are traditional towels used for most things - often worn as headscarf, with this the force is really with you ( ᐛ )
With this excitement in mind we have stocked up with an array of Star Wars branded Bento products, ranging from light saber chopsticks to amazing character egg molds. If you are a fan like us and want to make your Bento into an intergalactic experience - check out this collection :)
