Obento Class

Japanese obento, commonly referred to as bento, is a single-portion meal packed in a box, traditionally for lunch.

They can range from simple, homemade meals to elaborate and artistic creations, reflecting the care and thought put into them. Often prepared by parents for their children or by individuals for themselves and their partners, a homemade bento is tailored to personal tastes and nutritional needs. They typically include rice, a main protein (such as fish or meat), and a variety of side dishes (vegetables, pickles, etc.).
