Our Story

Ishikawa, Japan, 1925. The rush of high economic growth and a new found passion for fashion inspired many Japanese people to bring their lunches 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.Our Evolution

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.

Our Mission

Almost over a hundred years, we produce bento boxes in Japan.
By promising our customers to provide best quality with detailed designs and functions, we make the meal time fun and happy.
We're confident that it leads our life, community and world better with our over-90-year experience at the bento box indurtory. 

Eat food. Eat good food.


We support local markets, home cooked meals, and packing all the good stuff inside of your bento box. We hope you will find both health and happiness in the contents of your box, and allow Takenaka to be your guide to goodness.

Recycle and Reduce Plastic Consumption 


We all want to help save Mother Earth. By recycling and reducing waste and using more eco-friendly reusable containers, we can continue looking to the future.

Our Bento Box is created with a blend of 100% recycled PET ( polyethylene terephthalate) bottles*. Using our boxes is not just about avoiding the single-use plastic waste happening every day, Takenaka is a lifestyle that focuses on your health, while offering a sustainable and stylish way of packing, eating and storing food.
We believe this is the wave of the future and aim for a society where being healthy, happy and eco-friendly becomes the norm.

No worries! Our boxes are durable and long lasting, so you can use (and reuse them) time and time again.
