Japanese Boxed Lunches of the Year



"Ekiben," boxed lunches sold at railway stations and on trains across Japan, are often made with local delicacies and are popular as part of Japan's food culture.

They were originally targeted at long-distance passengers. In response to requests from fans, however, shipping systems and preservation techniques for ekiben were improved and they started to be sold at department stores and supermarkets.

The Gransta, a shopping facility on the first basement floor of JR Tokyo Station, announced its "Ekiben of the Year" awards, a ranking of the most popular ekiben by Tokyo-based stores between April 2008 and February 2009. The ranking was decided by Tetsudo Kaikan Co. that runs Gransta, based on sales figures of ekiben at stores in the facility.

1. The winner of the award is this delicious looking “Gyuniku bento” (a box of rice with sukiyak) from Asakusa Imahan, that retails for 1,050 yen.

2.Second place goes to “Hirekatsu to tamago no poketto sando” (a box of pork fillet cutlet and egg sandwiches) from Tonkatsu Maisen, and retails for just 470 yen.

3.Third place is awarded to “Kaisendon” (a bowl of rice topped with seafood) from Tsukiji Takewaka, and retails for 1,200 yen.

4.Fourth place is given to this gorgeous looking “Gin no suzu makunouchi bento — Nihonbashi — Ginmaku” (a box of rice and a variety of side dishes), from Ekibenya Kiwami and retails for 1,800 yen.
