Miyama Bento Box 148 | Kaede Wood


The Miyama Bento Box 148, part of our Miyama Collection, is another masterpiece of one of our favorite Japanese craftsmen, Mr. Asehira. As with all of his creations, pictures simply do not do this box justice!

Product Description

The story:

After seeing a piece about Bento&co on TV in Japan, 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 unlike any other wooden bento box. The kaede (Japanese maplewood this box was produced is highly regarded in Japan and usually used to make traditional Japanese furniture and finishings in housing interiors. Alas, these boxes provide an unique opportunity to own a masterpiece.
