Freah juicy meat on rice, simple but good. With a splash of veggies. On the bullet train with R and K. I wish I could log into my YouTube account to share the video. Sigh.

Fukumameya style beef on rice ekiben (900 yen?)

On the rail road home after hanging out in Fukushima with R and K for the weekend. Juicy fresh beef slice on rice, good stuff. So wish I could remember my bento geek YouTube password so I could share my trip. Sigh. Peace to the world!

riceball airport bento (650 yen)

Lit by the first rays of the New Year sun. Pretty good bento, nice variety. Flavor a bit muted and rice a bit too soft. All in all good snack before jumping on a plane in Haneda.

Variety of flavors bento (1350yen)

I'm heading to Hokkaido with K on a bullet train. If it wasn't for the fried chicken chunk in the corner this would almost be a vegetarian bento. Very juicy and fresh, feel vigorous after having this one. Took a video but I dont know if I'll ever get my YouTube account back in order to upload it, sadly.

various friend items "feast" bento (950 yen)

This one was sold for half off original price because of the time of day. The rice was a bit gummy because of the age but still good. Fried bits were very tasty and came with a nice packet of sauce.

It's been awhile since I've updated. I'm still here. Salmon is a yummy fish and this had fairly good variety in it. Simple but elegant.
