Beautiful day in San Francisco today — must take my son to the park! Spring colors for him:
Flavored onigiri (red/green hana ebi, and sakura denbu), takuan and edamame — packed in my small 240ml box. BTW, the total capacity of a Japanese bento box is usually printed on the bottom of the box (in raised plastic print). Generally there’s a square border running around the Japanese that describes the temperature limits (high and low) of each component of your box (lid, main body, clips, packing strip, and any internal lids or separators). The bottom-most entry in that list is capacity in ml (å®¹é‡) — handy for getting a grip on portion sizes, especially with the two-tier boxes.
