A masterpiece of one of our favorite Japanese craftsmen Mr. Asehira, the Miyama Octagonal Bento 177 | Nara is an extra large bento showcasing the natural beauty of Nara (Japanese Oak).

Nara (Japanese Oak) is native to Japan, and usually used for premium furniture and whisky barrels. Naturally dried over 5 years. Preserved in a rustic condition to showcase the wood's unique personality.

  • Please note: The wood may have naturally occurring small indentations and marks (featured in the product photos) which are intentionally left to reflect the natural state of the material.

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.
