Bento tools and accessories

Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. Eversince I discovered bento-ing 3 years ago, I've been on the look out for cute bento stuffs but I was having a hard time finding bento accessories in the Philippines because bento making is not popular here. Most japanese stores here don't carry bento tools and accessories. I got excited when I heard about Saizen store ( Daiso) opening at Trinoma and everything in the store is priced at Php85 . Saizen is the authorized Philippine retailer of daiso-Sangyo Inc., Japan. Daiso is the largest franchise of 100-yen shops in Japan.

I'm interested in making cute bento lunches and snacks for kids. I'll try to post pictures of my bento meals next time. Making bento is great for kids who are fussy eaters. Anyway, here are photos of the bento stuffs I bought.



I bought this heart shaped rice mold 3 years ago. ( my very first bento tool)





soy sauce bottles given by sis


bought from Saizen last month



food picks




bought online




Geez! I want to get all those cute hello kitty bento tools but they are kinda pricey.


Furikake ( rice seasoning) bought from Choto shop in Makati



Cute lunch boxes



I haven't organized all of them yet. I just placed everything in this plastic box.

I luv japanese food & luv the idea of bento boxes after watching a documentary about it.

Hi Anney! These are really cute! Can you share yung mga online stores na nabilihan mo nito? I am staying in Batangas now and walang stores dito na may bento accesories. Will be back in Manila when hubby gets home but next year pa yon. So choice ko lang is to buy online. :( My email's rhona.drydock@gmail.com Thank you so much. =)
