My partner and I have been looking for some good bento boxes for a while now (living in tiny Norway have meant finding them is quite difficult all in all), so finally holidaying in Japan meant that there'd be plenty of opportunities. Finding Bento&CO here...More

This shop was on a side street by the Nishiki Market. There was truly a bento box for everyone! I bought several, the cherry blossom was 1,730 and the Mt Fuji one was 2,370 yen. Highly recommend and fluent English was spoken which always helps!...More

Bento & Co has an excellent selection of bento boxes, and also accessories such as patty cases, chopsticks and wraps. They do tend towards the more expensive ones, but I think it is still good value. A bento box is a really useful souvenir and...More

I chose to walk some amazing back streets to get to this equally amazing shop. There is a great selection of bento boxes - many unique ones that I haven't seen even in Tokyo. There are also a wife variety of bento accessories as well....More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
