Aisai Bento (Lunchbox of Beloved Wife)Katachiware Japanese Style Tableware
An offshoot, the shikaeshi bento box, the Aisai Bento or “bento made by loving wife” is what it is. Bento box made with love from a wife towards her husband in the form of a delicious, nutritious, visually-appealing lunch box. Perhaps one of the greatest ways to say “I love you” while you’re away at work. Similarly, young women in relationships sometimes prepare a handmade bento for their significant other during the spring season.
The Aisai Bento Boxes tend to have nutritionally balanced ingredients in season and have cute colourful edible love messages. An example would be cooked rice, boiled egg, steamed broccoli, salmon with sauce, and radishes cut to look like love hearts and pickles.
