10 Awesome Japanese Packagings
Hello Cheesie! I don’t usually leave comments on blogs (although I really love yours!) but this I HAVE TO share. I was changing trains at Sendai station and decided to buy their famed 牛たん弁当 (Beef Tongue bento) to try. When I reached my accommodation for that night, I was going to ask my host if I could use the microwave oven to heat up my food. That was when the Japanese told me the most awesome thing I’ve ever heard of in my life – just pull the string in the bento box and it’ll heat up by itself. Like seriously?!?!?!?!! And yes I pulled the string and my beef tongue + rice was heated up to perfection. I guess this comes in really handy for Japanese to eat during long journeys on the Shinkansen.
