daruma bento & kamameshi bento

daruma bento

I went to Nagano on the Shinkansen last weekend. I had Ekiben(Daruma bento &
Kamameshi bento) both ways(going and coming) on the Shinkansen.
They were made with tasty riches from the mountains like bamboo shoot,
shiitake mushrooms, etc. It’s always fun to eat Ekiben on the trains.

Daruma bento comes in a Daruma dolls. Daruma dolls are hollow and round Japanese wish dolls with no arms or legs,modelled after Bodhidharma.

Kamameshi bento comes in a rustic earthenware pot.

Ekiben (Railway boxed meal) are a specific type of bento boxed meals, sold on
trains and train stations in Japan.

Ekiben containers can be very attractive: made from plastic, wood, or ceramic.
Many train stations have since become famous for their especially tasty ekiben,
made from local food specialties.
