More on Shokado
The Shokado bento (松花堂弁当) is a particular form of Japanese bento that originates from the Early Edo Period by a monk named Shoukadou. These boxes were originally made for storing tobacco and paints. Distinctive in design with its lacquered wood finishing and the cross partitioning of its interior: The Shokado bento not only allows for a presentation of food that is elegant and pleasing to look at, but also prevents the transfer of taste and smell between dishes. This form of bento is commonly used in restaurants.
