LARGE Bento Box hard enamel pin - A GIANT japanese lunchbox pin

A bento (弁当), or obento. it’s its own category of food that you can eat at any time of day. The first bento dates back to the 5th century when bamboo was used as boxes to contain food to carry out to the fields, for hunting or to the battlefield. The traditional lunch box has evolved over the centuries and today, you can enjoy a countless variety of bentos.

In Japan, traditional Japanese food is served individually on many small plates. You can see this system of small dishes inside a Japanese bento box as well. Each food type is organized neatly into the box, thoughtfully planned out so the foods do not mix, oftentimes using small separators or cups. This is very helpful in transporting the bento boxes.

Traditionally, bento boxes are room temperature or stored cold, but it can also be heated. The portions are bite-sized, and conveniently eaten easily using chopsticks.
Popular items inside a Japanese bento box include:

- Fish or meat (usually in the form of meatballs, karaage, katsu, sausages, etc.)
- Pickled or precooked vegetables (Salad, broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, edamame, mini tomatos, etc.)
- Tamagoyaki (Japanese omelett)
- Potato or pasta salad
- Sometimes fruit (in a little box or small bowl)
