Grabbed a bento for a train ride out to Gunma. Ethnic style. Less spicy than authentic but nice flavor. Left side has a hamburger patty and spaghetti.

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.

salmon steak on rice bento (730 yen)

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.

Kyoto wagyu beef bento (1080yen)

Now this is what a bento should be! Soft deluxe buttery Japanese beef on a delicious bed of rice. With a cold beer, watching the countryside quickly roll past the window of the bullet train. Golden afternoon sunlight and delicious moments. I took a video too, just in case I can ever get back into my youtube account...

neighborhood salmon bento (540yen)

This was a bento from a local shop. Surprisingly good. Salmon was toasty but juicy. The noodle salad was flavor, whole bento was enjoyable.

My bento blogs won't stop! I wish I could login to my youtube account but maybe I'll just have to start over and make a new one or something. So frustrating. Hmm
