The Miyama Bento 136, part of our exclusive Miyama Collection, is the masterpiece of one of our favorite Japanese craftsmen, Mr. Asehira. Words do not suffice to adequately express the outstanding nature of these handicraft treasures from Japan. Clearly, this line features some of the finest bento boxes we have ever had the pleasure of carrying (yes, they are that good!).
After seeing a piece about Bento&co on TV in Japan, a furniture maker from Miyama (a small town in the north of Kyoto Prefecture), decided to have his hand at manufacturing bento boxes. After several attempts to perfect his boxes, a satisfied Mr. Asehira presented his best boxes to us - and we were floored by the result!
While the origin of this box is certainly interesting, the real star of the story is the bento box itself- they are exquisite! And so, we proudly present the boxes Mr. Asehira made, available at Bento&co and nowhere else!
Only the very best Japanese wood is used for these boxes, the type that is traditionally reserved for fine furniture and temples. With proper care, this box will last you a lifetime.
Each box in this series has its own unique design and number; please pick the one that suits you best. They are all composed of three layers of wood with urethane coating for a perfect Bento Box experience. Each box is delivered with an internal divider.
Miyama Bento Box 136: Japanese kuri (chestnut) wood. The wood these rectangle boxes are produced with is very rare and usually used exclusively in traditional Japanese furniture. Alas, these boxes provide a unique opportunity to own a masterpiece.
