Hi, there! We're Bento&co. Welcome :-)! We are a leading online store specializing in bento boxes and accessories, based out of beautiful Kyoto, Japan.
Thomas and Erico, from a tiny house in Kyoto, opened our online shop on November 23rd, 2008 . Starting small with help from friends and a stock of 30,000 yen (about $300) fitting neatly between the tv and couch the Bento&co story began.
In March 2012, we moved to our current location in the heart of Kyoto followed by the opening of our boutique in the downtown Kyoto.
Our first packages were lovingly wrapped on our coffee table, over time we have grown more and more professional but always keeping true to our love of quality products and great service, which still is the foundation of our company. We strive to make fabulous Japanese products available to all with quality service.
Bento&co now employs fourteen people working to bring Japanese culture closer to you. Since 2008, we've dispatched parcels up to 95 countries. Most of our customers are currently located in France, USA, Canada, Japan and Australia.
Thanks to years of experience handling parcels, we've launched a new shipping service to help businesses and make international shipping easier: Ship&co. Our latest exciting adventure...
