Japan Rokebenaward Award official website: Background of the “1st Japan Location Bento Award”
Behind the scenes of the production work that gives power to people on a daily basis, there are times when an endlessly long and sometimes painful journey continues. “When I eat a bento from that shop, I get stronger.” “When I see a bento from this shop at work, I get excited.” And when you want to push yourself a little harder, a delicious bento is what keeps you going. The “Japan Location Bench Award” is an award to express our gratitude, which is difficult to express to the on-location bentos who support everyone’s daily efforts, and to pray for their continued development. Praise the bento.
