2. Hippari-dako Meshi by Awajiya

This bento, “Hippari-dako Meshi” was born in 1988 to celebrate a successful completion of Akashi-Kaikyo bridge to connect Kobe City and Awaji-City both in Hyogo prefecture. Since then, this ekiben has been very popular. At a first glance, you will be surprised at its appearance. A ceramic jar is packed with boiled octopus, conger eels and vegetables. Under these delis, you will find flavored rice (with stock and soy sauce). Once you start eating, its volume is bigger than how it looks. If you find yourself not wanting to get rid of the container after a meal, it may be a good idea to clean it thoroughly and take it home as a souvenir (1,000 JPY with tax).
