i just ordered some new bento boxes from j-list and one off ebay.

round totoro bento with miso bowl

this is a fairly unique collectors item! i couldn’t resist. also, i pack a miso soup ball on occasion, so with a small container of rice or onigiri, i think this could work great. he doesn’t like donburi, but i do, so it would work great for that as well.

large rectangular dokodemoissho bento

i hope it’s not too girly for the boy!! it’s a larger size bento in a nice green color, and i like the angles on it.

[edit: he says it’s not too girly; he likes it cuz the cat looks stoney, making the bright green color very appropriate.. haha.. furthermore he has ok’ed the use of hello kitty bento accessories in his bentos. i am so glad he is a man who is secure in his masculinity ;D ]

uneri (wave) elongated oval

this looks like a good box for rolled items like sushi pouches, vegetables rolled in beef, or tamagoyaki. i like the dark blue. i’ll need to pack some onigiri or something else in a seperate container for this to be enough food, but i really like the shape.

totoro mini containers

more totoro! i couldn’t resist. one is a little more masculine (as in, not pink) so i think it will work great for salads or fruit or other dessert to add to the lunch.

kakashi bento

i am a super big naruto fan, and when i was looking for bento boxes on ebay, i saw this and couldn’t resist. the seller also has naruto and sasuke boxes. i didn’t get naruto because it’s a little too bright for the kinds of lunches i pack. i think if i was more into decorative bento, i would totally go for it. that and i really liked the design on the kakashi box.

here’s a sample of an assembled bento in the naruto bento series, thought i’d post it just cuz it’s a good example of how to assemble a bento:

How do you like the totoro bento with the bowl? I am thinking of ordering it myself and was wondering if it holds together well. Most bentos seem to have a rubber band of sorts to hold all the layers together. Does this one not need one?

haven’t received the shipment yet, should be coming any day now 😦 i’ll let you know when i get it. i was wondering the same thing, but i figured i would just tie it up in a furoshiki if there wasn’t a holding together mechanism.

I got the Totoro bowl set today! Very cute. Very in need of a furoshiki. I guess I have to go and buy one. 😛

Oh, dangit… I live in second end of the world (Poland), where is hardto get any good rince, miso or nori. And don’t ask about Bento Boxes, I could only find awful pink box (yea, I’m a boy ^^), and nothing, that could at least resemble Naruto box. Sigh…

Please and Thank You!

Hi! In response to the queries about the Kakashi bento, I bought it 2 years ago on ebay when I was searching under “bento”. Try searching ebay for “naruto bento” and also try the ebay stores. That’s the best I can offer.

For the totoro bento it does not hold together well. I use a rubber band or a furoshiki.

I actually have one of the Kakashi bento up for auction on my Livejournal sales page (just click my name to go to the bento entry). 😀 I was originally going to keep it myself, as I already sold my Sasuke and Naruto ones, but I feel he needs to find a new home. I’ve never actually used it, so it’s in excellent shape. :3

This is a question for the Kakashi Hatake bento box: What was the name of the ebay seller that you bought it from?
