Usually, when most people think of bento boxed lunches, one of two mental images spring to mind: either the quick, cheap meals sold by convenience stores across Japan, or the home-made versions lovingly prepared by caring mothers and wives.

But there’s also a third category of bento, which are high-end offerings from gourmet restaurants, often sold in the prepared food sections of fancy Japanese department stores. For example, swing by the basement of the Tokyo Station-adjacent branch of department store Daimaru, and you’ll find Meat Yazawa, a bento/takeout offshoot of the restaurant of the same name will set you back 5,929 yen.
