Make your lunch as cute as you are with this charming 3 tier bento box with elastic bento strap. Designed in the style of a maiko, or apprentice geisha, this is part of a special line of Kyoto inspired kokeshi bento boxes made by famous bento big daddies Hakoya. This lovely lady will keep your food fresh and delicious with utmost elegance, and is made to resemble a traditional Japanese wooden kokeshi doll. Her hat even transforms into a soup bowl or cup, great for miso soup! Japan Centre is one of the few companies selling these outside of Japan!

The bento measures approx. 13cm x 10cm. The top tier bowl can hold approx. 240ml but cannot be used to store unwrapped food. The 2nd tier has a domed plastic inner-lid and both the middle and bottom tiers hold approx. 200ml. Plastic inner-lid not microwave or dishwasher safe.

As described and pictured, and she arrived in perfect condition. This is a lovely little bento. If you ever need to replace the strap (which we did when we lost the one for our other little Kokeshi samurai), the Noir Deli replacement straps sold on the Japan Centre site fit these small Kokeshi bentos.
