Bento Boxes in Japan Pavilion

Does anyone know if they sell Bento Boxes in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot? I am trying to remember, but drawing a complete blank. I'd like to get myself one for lunches, but if they sell them in Epcot I will wait and not order one online yet. Thanks in advance!

My son and I are totally into bento boxes and we were stoked to check out the Japan pavilion's offerings. Unfortunately, it was mostly Hello Kitty items (and, being a middle school boy, that would equal certain social death. )

There are some other laquer boxes in the back of Mitsukoshi, but nothing like what you'd find in San Francisco's Japantown or at Ichiban Kan's website.

I was surprised not to see a better selection there on my last visit, having just returned from Japan itself....

I've gotten a couple Hello Kitty ones there, but honestly didn't look for the lacquer ones in the back. I can get the lacquer ones locally at several locations here in So Cal, so I'm lucky.

OK at the risk of being labeled a duhhhh.....what is a bento box? I thought it had something to do with food and allergies but apparently I am WAY off.

You can read about the basics here, one of my favorite Bento sites -
Bento FAQ | Lunch in a Box: Building a Better Bento

It's truly an art form, and I love looking at the pics of what you can do with food.

Great question! The Hello Kitty ones will be perfect for DD when she starts preschool! Plan on picking some up.
