If you’re guilty of replacing meals with chocolate, have we got the lunch for you!
Japanese bento boxes are a constantly evolving cultural aspect, from the typical assortments you find in convenience stores to luxurious ekiben and more. Recently, our Japanese-language reporter Ayaka Idate found an interestingly expensive bento in Shibuya.
While most bento boxes cost only a few hundred yen, this one in particular costs 2,700 yen (US$24.23). If you’ve already read the title, you can probably guess why: it’s actually made entirely of gourmet chocolate-type morsels.
