Gourd Yamanaka Lacquerware Three Tiers Jubako Bento Box
This three-tiered Jubako is decorated with auspicious gourds. Plum and cherry blossoms are also painted, giving it an elegant and lovely atmosphere. The inside is bright vermilion.
The combination of black lacquer and Maki-e gives an authentic and luxurious look. It is recommended for special events or when inviting guests, as it renders the table a gorgeous and traditional Japanese atmosphere.
In Japan, it is common to eat a festive dish called "Osechi" at New Year's, which is often served in Jubako.
You can carry Jubako around to the house where the gathering takes place on the New Year's day. You can also take it with you when you eat outside, such as for " Hanami"(cherry-blossom viewing).
Each tier of a Jubako holds about 1.5 cups of rice.
This is enough for three to four people.
If you fill the remaining two tiers with side dishes, you will have enough food for about four people or more.
You can use just one or two tiers, so you can adjust it according to the number of people. You can also put sweets in it for a gorgeous look.

Gourd Yamanaka Lacquer Three Tiers Jubako
This is my first wooden jubako and it is absolutely beautiful. The lacquering is very nicely polished and the gourds, flowers/petals and cords really make it look elegant. The combination of gold, pink and red fits very nicely together. As a display piece, it immediately stands out to everyone. Definitely worth it!
Thank you for such heartwarming review!It means so much to us. We are so pleased that you understand and love the fine workmanship and beauty of this Jubako.
