Miyama Bento Box 159 | Keyaki

The Miyama Bento Box 159 Keyaki, part of our Miyama Collection, is another masterpiece of one of our favorite Japanese craftsmen, Mr. Asehira. Words do not suffice to adequately express the outstanding nature of this true handicraft treasure from Japan.

Product Description

The story:
After seeing Bento&co featured on TV, 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- each one is exquisite! And so, we proudly present the boxes Mr. Asehira made, available at Bento&co and no where else!

These boxes are all one of a kind and utilizes premium wood that has been naturally dried over the course of 5 years. The Keyaki (an elm-like tree native to Japan) wood these boxes are produced with is often used in traditional Japanese furniture, and is highly prized in Japan.
Comes with the pictured lunch band.
