New Old Traditional Rabbit Bento Box

20120912-103526.jpg

I ordered this bento off eBay about 8 days ago, although it seemed sooo much longer!

It’s such a great little box, it’s slightly scratched and buffed in places but I think that adds to the character of the box. Plus it was made in, I think it said, the 70s so I don’t expect it to be gleaming. It did say in the description it was scratched so it’s not like I wasn’t warned 🙂

It’s a two tiered, black box with a traditional usagi (rabbit) and moon motif. In Japan there is a story that on the moon there lives a rabbit making mochi ( sweet rice cake), so rabbits and moons are often featured together in Japanese culture. Just like Sailor Moon, her name in Japanese is usagi tsukino, which translates as Rabbit child of the moon… I think.

The bottom layer is 250 ml and the too layer is 200ml so it’s a nice little box 🙂
And the seal feels pretty water tight!
