"Bento" - Japan's Food Culture

Bento is an integral part of the food culture of Japan. For the Japanese, they represent not only convenient food that can be eaten on the go, but also traditions that have been cherished since ancient times. The history of bento can be traced back to the 1600s, where drawings show people in a rustic landscape taking a break from their farm chores to eat their bento. Later, people came to enjoy bento on various occasions such as "makunouchi bento" which they savoured as they watched kabuki performances, and "hanami bento," which they ate during the cherry blossom season. ln recent years, bento have proved to be a popular takeaway item for home parties, and a wide variety of bento exists for celebrating seasons and events in Japan.
