The Bento Box

The word obentō (lunch) was derived from the kanji tōza, which means “for the time being”, and benzuru, which means “to make do”. 

The idea of this kind of light, mid-day meal dates back originally to the 12th century, but it wasn’t really popularized nationally until 1885. That’s when Saitō Kahei began making and selling ekibentō  (“train station boxed meals”) at the Utsunomiya station.  He sold omusubi (pressed rice cakes) stuffed with umeboshi (a pickle of ume fruits. Red and very salty and tastes extremely sour) and takuan (a popular and traditional pickle in Japan, made from daikon radishes).

A bentō box today is typically filled with locally available foods, arranged in a specialized manner, known as meisan or as meibutsu, the local regional theme dictating in which particular commemorative way the box is filled.

Sake Sets

Sake, a Japanese strong wine made from rice, is traditionally served in a ritualistic fashion. And the presentation is made all the more fine by the quality of the sake set used.

The sake is heated to near (but not quite) boiling, then poured into the large carafe, and then the host pours cup-fulls of the aromatic, pungent, yet slightly sweet tasting elixir for each of the guests.

Grey Blue sake set – ceramic – 5 piece set

This set is beautiful ceramic, rustic yet elegant, and is modestly priced for the value at $29.95.
