I love bringing lunch box to work... I have been slacking off with bringing my lunch box to work for a while, and now I'm trying to get back to routine of doing so. But next time I start bringing my lunch to work, I'm planning to take it to a next level.

Here's some inspiring lunch boxes :)

My daughter is facinated with Bento box as well. I got her a couple simple books on it for her so she can play with it once in a while :p

My sister got into bento few years back.
Now she does that everyday with those funny heart-shaped eggs and overdecorated stuff :)

I think it looks sweet though

Hi Sara - I like my bentos, but those are just too cute for me! I'd never bring one to work. What would the guys say? :O

Actually, ... I think you should make bentos like these for Jon. A big knife man like him would love them, I think.

Must be terrible! Thank heavens kawaii hasn't invaded the world of knives and knife design. Yet.

I am thinking Hello Kitty engraved yanagiba with pink dyed wood for the handle.

Haha, that's on my list ;) I actually already bought a few Hello Kitty buttons for endcaps and had planned to laquer the handles pink, maybe have Mike airbrush Hello Kitty motives on it - just didn't get to it yet with the order book overflowing...

See, everyone loves kawaii bento! I should come up with an idea to incorporate a knife design with a touch of kawaii-ness for Jon's lunch box.... :hungry:

Love the pink handle idea, but I'm thinking a better choice for kawaii no bocho would be a white ceramic blade - yes, the Hello Kitty brand - with pink burl handle of some sort. Kawaii-so.

how about a handle that looks like a red ribbon? that matches hello kitty theme.

Haha - brilliant! However, the photo above is sacrilege, you do realise!

That's not Hello Kitty at all. It's more like Goodbye Kitty.

I have a soft spot for Bento... Thank you for posting Sara!

Those are works of art for sure! Reminds me of a trip I made from Tokyo to Kyoto in the Shinkansen a few years ago with a box of bento on my lap while admiring the scenery! :happymug:

I like bento, but after one I usually yearn for something spicy or with a bit more flavour. My wife is Indonesian and won't eat them - too bland for her!

Bentos also remind me of work and not being able to get home for lunch.

I loooove obento..... I used to eat very little when I was little, and I was always one of the last kids to finish lunch at school (school provides lunch for kids in public schools in Japan as opposed to "bring your own"). But on Saturdays and for events or school trips, we brought lunch boxes from home, and at these times I could finish the whole thing. My favorite obento food were nikujyaga, sosages, hams, tamagoyaki, onigiri with umeboshi or salmon, asparagus, and strawberries.

You know what my favorite "obento" is? Osechi. I know osechi is not exactly obento, but similar enough :) Can't wait to be in Japan for new year's day!

A dog in a pillow fort ... a toddler doing dangerous things with tin foil ... a cat's derrière ... and then rather candid photos of Jon & Sara doing some kind of private knife dance ... :bigeek:

Im lost. The thread started with cute bento, and then suddenly:


Am I the only one who gets a mad urge to pick all their tiny little eyes off?

Maybe cute bento make people go nuts.

.... I'm bringing "boring" obento to work tomorrow :) ! At least it will be really tasty, and no one will pick "eyes" out of my obento then (because my boring obento wouldn't have any characters in them as a part of design)
