Kawaii Bento Boxes & Accessories

Posted on February 12, 2009 by

If your lunch leaves you bored then you clearly need to cheer it up with some kawaii bento boxes, accessories and inspiration. Here’s some I found.

This post was inspired by these adorable onigiri boxes posted on Just Bento. They fit a rice ball plus a small side dish and come in 3 cute designs. Available from Bento&co.


JList have tons of bento things but who doesn’t like pandas? This box has 2 tiers so you can get all kinds of tasty stuff in there.


These Shinzi Katoh apple sauce bottles are so cute that we should just all pretend that they’re ESSENTIAL to a healthy lunch and then we can buy them without guilt.

from japan with love

No-one wants sticky hands at lunchtime so bring your own oshibori (damp hand towel) to clean up with. If you get this one, you can keep it safe inside a BEE.  Oh my. Where else but From Japan With Love.

Finally, if you want to take things to the next level of cute, how about making some charaben, detailed bentos of cute characters! There are lots of cute bento blogs (I like Anna The Red) or pick up a copy of Face Food for some inspiration. It’s a lovely, tiny book full of bento photos and interviews with their makers.

Happy lunching!

    Ahhh, I love bento stuff. ;_; That little bee KILLS me, so CUTE!

    I didn’t see that much of it when I was in Japan, though – I guess we were looking in the wrong places! There’s always next time, I suppose. ;)
