Pine Tree Yamanaka Lacquerware Three Tiers Jubako Bento Box
This three tiered Jubako has a picture of a pine tree in gold Maki-e. The inside is bright vermilion. The trunk of the pine tree is decorated with abalone seashells as an accent.
Maki-e is a technique in which pictures, patterns, and letters are painted on the surface of lacquerware, and then gold or silver powder is sprinkled onto the surface of the ware before it dries.
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).
A single layer of a Jubako can hold about one and a half to two cups of rice.
This is enough for about three to five people.
If you put side dishes in the other two tiers, you will have enough food for about six 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.

about yamanaka lacquerware
Yamanaka lacquerware is produced in the Yamanaka Onsen area of Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture, and has a history of about 400 years.
The traditional techniques of Yamanaka lacquerware were highly evaluated and became known throughout Japan, despite a period of temporary interruption.
It is characterized by the use of wood grain patterns to express a natural texture, and is made with great attention to detail.
It was designated as a traditional craft by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in 1975.
absolute wonderful piece that I will later on use it often.
this item is the same as the other item from the creator but it's a lower price wise and it makes the same beautiful sizing for a party or a picnic without worrying about it thus, I am in love with how it fits in both budget and style.
Stunning Jubako will become the centerpiece of your New Year’s celebration!!
This gorgeous three-tier Yamanaka lacquerware jubako is made by artisans in Ishikawa Prefecture. Adorned with gold, leaf and shell, the Pinebark is extraordinarily realistic and three-dimensional. I have made my own osechi ryori for the last several years and this is such a beautiful centerpiece to your new year's table that is functional as well as beautiful; I place it on display at other times throughout the year, where it frequently attracts compliments.
