Ishikawa, Japan, 1925. The rush of high economic growth and a newfound passion for fashion inspired many Japanese people to bring their lunch to work for the first time. Recognizing this trend, a company called Takenaka soon began producing beautifully crafted bento boxes, hand-painted on the outside with colorful lacquer for the people to carry proudly.
Takenaka’s simple, hand-polished designs soon sparked a rise in the popularity of bento-style lunch boxes, and with time, they became a trend of their own. Throughout the history of Takenaka, and continuing through today, you will find the same level of high-quality design in each colorful lunch box of joy.
