We are big fans of Hakoya products, and we think that they have really outdone themselves with these adorable Kokeshi Bento boxes. Turning kokeshi, traditional Japanese dolls made of wood, into practical bento boxes is a stroke of genius.
Kokeshi Bento Ichiro is the perfect match for Hanako, though it is unknown whether they are married or not. (^^)/
The Kokeshi Bento consists of 2 parts:
- 2 stacking compartments. The upper compartment has a domed, leak-resistant inner lid.
- An inverted bowl that's also a cute hat or headpiece for the kokeshi doll.
If you get more than one Kokeshi Bento, you can mix up the components to create your very own kokeshi! An elastic bento belt is included, to hold everything together.

Total capacity: 640ml. Each closed compartment holds 200ml, and the bowl can hold up to 240ml. However you should only pack well wrapped food in the bowl since it's not sealed. One idea is to bring along a packet of instant miso soup and add hot water in this bowl at lunchtime.
Dimensions: 100mm (3.9") diameter x 130mm (5.12") high.
Composition and Care
The boxes are made of PET-ABS. BPA-free
They are microwave and dishwasher safe, with the inner flexible lids removed. Might we recommend to use a dishwasher liquid soap (vs tablet) to avoid washing out your kokeshi prints.
Do not place in the oven or near an open flame.
Made in Japan, in Ishikawa.
