The Magewappa | Ume is a large ume (plum) flower shaped two-tier bento with a large 800 mL capacity.
Lovingly made one-by-one in Odate, Akita (Japan) by local craftsmen.

What we love about it:

  • Wood is only lightly coated which allows rice packed inside to breathe, making it taste great even when at room temperature.
  • Wonderful cedar smell that makes your food taste even better.
  • Features the Bentoco logo on the inside of the lid.
  • Silky smooth surface and amazing workmanship.

Details & Care

  • Dimensions: 12.5 x 9.3 cm height (4.9 x 3.6")
  • Capacity: 800 mL (upper tier 350 ml, lower tier 450 ml)
  • Materials: Japanese Cedarwood, Polyurethane


  • Do not microwave or place in dishwasher or oven. Best for carrying food to be enjoyed at room temperature.
  • Pack foods that may stain the wood in a separate container, or in divider cups.
  • To wash, fill the bento with lukewarm water and allow it to soak for 5 to 10 minutes max.
  • Empty the water and wipe all sides of the bento and lid with a soft sponge and a mild dish detergent and rinse.
  • Wipe with a soft cloth, then allow to air-dry with lid off in a well-ventilated place away from sunlight.

How Magewappa Bento Boxes are Made

Magewappa craftsmen cut sustainably-sourced Akita cedar into thin strips, and then boil the wood to soften it. Then, they curve the wood strips using a wooden mold. The bent wood is dried and then bound with strips of dark cherry wood bark into bento boxes.

Instead of a bento bag, use furoshiki to wrap your Magewappa bento boxes to ensure they stay securely closed.
