A beautiful bento box

A magewappa bento box from Odate in Akita prefecture, by the workshop of master craftsman Yoshinobu Shibata. The box is made of Akita sugi wood (often called Japanese cedar). The sides of the box are made of one solid piece of bent wood (=magewappa).


This is about as good as it gets when it comes to bento boxes.
