Bento Box Website?

[Note: This question on where to buy bento boxes moved from Home Cooking. See the original thread if you want to discuss recipes: - The Chowhound Team


A wile back there was a great post about bento boxes and someone posted a link to great web site selling all different kinds. I tried searching to no avail. I want to get one in lieu of a lunch box for my son this year.

Recipes/ideas appreciated too!

    1. If you don't mind doing mail-order from Japan, there's a great selection of bento boxes at I haven't ordered from Jbox (yet), but a friend bought a domo-kun doll from them and was pleased with the service.

      Or, if shipping from Japan is too expensive, I bet that some vendors also offer bento boxes. I know I've seen the tall metal-jar style of bento.


      1. You definitely need to check out for bento boxes and all things Japanese.

        They are in NYC, so no huge shipping costs.

        Korin is the major importer of Japanese goods for restaurants and has recently expanded into the home market.
