Wooden, Sustainable

See all pictures

If you want to soak in Japanese vibes, the Miraclekoo Wooden Sushi Bento Box provides a more exotic feel. Bento lunch boxes were traditionally wood-made from cypress trees. This one uses cryptomeria (from the cypress family), ubiquitous in Japan.

It’s known for its moisture-retaining property, making it an excellent bento lunch box if you’ll pack in sushi. Miraclekoo Wooden Sushi Bento Box can carry up to 3 cups of food, with detachable dividers to make room for your sandwich.

Super lightweight, affordable, and eco-friendly as well! You might be required to handwash this bento lunch box from Miraclekoo, but that’s how you keep it at its best state and prolong its lifespan.

The lid is slightly oversized compared to the tray’s build. It’s kept in place using a strap and surprisingly does the job correctly. We don’t recommend this if you’ll be moving too much since the strap can still slide due to the round shape of the bento lunch box.

Experience Japan with every sushi slice you take from Miraclekoo Wooden Sushi Bento Box.
