Beautiful annual growth ring of cypress wood lunch box from Ehime

There are numerous number of lunch boxes are available in Japan and they are made of various materials like plastics, metals, wood etc.

Wooden lunch boxes are, however, getting more popular lately because they are attractive  and they also visually stimulate your taste buds.

There are also various types of wooden lunch boxes, but this cypress lunch box is particularly unique and also beautiful.


This is made from a block of cypress wood leaving the annual growth ring on the lid as you can see.


This lid is not only an attractive feature of this box, but also it works as a presentation for the person who opens the box.


The whole block of cypress is carved inside to make that box, so it is very light weight (cypress itself is very light weight material) and you can also see the same annual growth ring pattern on the bottom of the box.


This is also this sharp edge lunch box with the same wood.


This shaper edge type gives more internal space and it can also be used for other purposes other than the lunch box like stationary box etc.

The size is W18 x D9 x H5.5cm and the price is 5,200yen+tax. It is large enough for adults too.
