Our favourite product of the week: Rilakkuma Egg Bento Set

With this set your lunch becomes the most delicious meal of the day. We now carry a super cute and quite elaborate bento set from the “Rilakkuma Egg Kitchen” collection. It is our favourite product of the week. The set consists of a cool plaid lunch bag with two little bento boxes for side dishes and one insulated box for rice, pasta etc. A little fork is included in an extra case too. Your lunch can stay hot up to 6 hours in the insulated bag and it’s really comfortable to carry around. Plus the Rilakkuma design is very kawaii.

Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 1: Bento accessories

During our last business trips to Japan we also visited Sunshine City. The super big complex is Tokyo’s first city within the city and contains lots of shops, restaurants, an aquarium, planetarium, museum, indoor theme park, a hotel and offices.

We were interested in looking at the shops to find kawaii products and were super impressed. It was a shopping paradise! We took so many pictures of all the things that we decided to split them up into different themed blog posts, so that you can see all of them. Today we’ll start with bentos and kitchen accessories. It’s so amazing how much super cute stuff they have there: thousands of chopsticks, bento boxes and all the bento accessories you could imagine.

The “Year of the Snake” will start in a couple of days, and as the time around Chinese New Year is a time full of traditions, we want to share one with you. Like in the last years every order will get a super cute “red pocket”, starting today. The little red envelopes are usually filled with money gifts for friends and relatives, ours will be filled with a little surprise. All the envelopes have super cute snake designs to welcome the “Year of the Snake”, and also contain lots of gold and red – very important colours for Chinese New Year.

We have 2,700 red pockets to give away, so if you want one, be sure to order in the next couple of days, as they will be gone fast.
