Komamonyo is a very special box. Made of turned and lacquered wood (not a plastic imitation!), this is a gorgeous work of art. Use this as a bento box or a bonbon container ..or just to place on your desk or table to admire. 

Product Description  

Komamonyo is created using traditional methods in Ishikawa prefecture, Japan. Each box requires several very skilled artisans to complete. A solid piece of tochi wood (a hardwood similar to chestnut) is hollowed out, then turned on lathes to be smooth inside and grooved outside. The pieces are then hand lacquered in multiple colors. The colors on the outside of red, green yellow and cream are vibrant yet somehow very natural. This box will go well with many styles of decor, both traditional and modern, so leave it out between uses as a bento box! 
Not only is this box beautiful, it has a practical advantage over plastic boxes too. Steamed rice stored inside wooden bento boxes can 'breathe', so that it doesn't get soggy. This means that the rice tastes much better. 
Koma means 'spinning top' in Japanese. Komamonyo is made to look like a spinning top, a traditional child's toy that was very popular in the middle Edo period (around the 18th-19th centuries). Bright red objects are supposed to protect the owner from bad luck and illness. Let this box give you luck!
The box comes packaged in a beautiful handmade washi paper-look box.

Product Details

This is a two tier box. Each tier or compartment is made out of a single piece of wood, as is the lid. The tiers stack securely. 
Dimensions: 13.5cm in diameter x 12.5cm high (5.31" diameter x 4.92" high). 
Materials*: Made of tochi wood, a hardwood similar to chestnut. Lacquered inside and out (the colors are derived from natural lacquer sap). 
*Note that there may be slight variations in the wood pattern, since no two pieces are alike. 

Product Care

Hand wash only. Don't let this near a microwave, oven, open flame or dishwasher! Use warm water and a mild dishwashing detergent if necessary. Rinse well and wipe with a soft cloth. With proper care, this box will become a family heirloom. We recommend using a furoshiki wrapping cloth to wrap and carry this box. 
Made in Japan.
