Hi, I’m Fumi. Have you ever eaten Japanese style bento while you stay in Tokyo? We have many various kinds of bento at convenience stores, department stores, shops and stations.
Bento is one of Japanese food culture and one or part of Japanese lifestyle. Homemade bento is essencial in our life, but we sometimes can’t make it. In those cases, we get bento from bento shops.
Nowadays, we can buy it easily everywhere for example, convenience stores, shops and stations. In this article, I share bento shops inside Shinjuku Station. The place is called “NEWoMan”.
