Miyama Bento Box 190 | Sen


 A masterpiece of one of our favorite Japanese craftsmen Mr. Asehira, the Miyama Bento Box 190 | Sen showcases the natural beauty of Sen (Japanese Ash)

Handcrafted in Miyama (美山 'beautiful mountain'), a center of traditional crafts.

The Story
One day, a Miyama woodworker named Mr. Asehira saw Bento&co featured on local TV, and was inspired to make bento boxes of his own! When we saw his results, we were thrilled. Mr. Asehira continues to hand make these limited edition bento boxes, and we are honored to be able to sell them on our shop exclusively.

Made from Sen (Japanese Ash)
Sen is native to Japan and is used for taiko drums, Japanese furniture and interiors. This wood features a moku (rare pattern) called tama-moku of linked circles that resembles pearls.
