Experience Details
A tasty and easily-transportable lunch in Japan, the humble bento box is often found in convenience stores, train stations, and even restaurants throughout the country. A bento box is a convenient Japanese lunch box, generally divided into sections with a variety of scrumptious morsels inside, to make a healthy lunch that’s filling and full of variety. They’re often homemade to be taken off to school (with decorative or colorful toppings) or work (a nutritious and handy lunch to take along to the office). Kaiseki cuisine, on the other hand, is considered a luxurious multi-course dining experience in Japan, but with an element of variety that is similar to that of the bento box, due to being made up of many different components served individually throughout the meal.

Experience Location

Home to the famous Sensoji Temple, a Buddhist temple built in the 7th century, Asakusa overflows with rich history and traditional culture. In the past, Asakusa was Tokyo’s leading entertainment district, a red light district with a number of kabuki theaters. Most of Asakusa was destroyed during World War II, but it has since grown into one of Tokyo's most visited tourist spots. Here, you'll find Nakamise Dori, a bustling shopping street lined with local snack and souvenir shops. Asakusa also has other attractions such as parks, public baths, and museums.
