  1. Makunouchi

    Makunouchi is a popular type of Japanese bento which consists of fish, meat, pickles, eggs and vegetables along with rice and an umeboshi. There are also other kinds such as a chestnut-rice, sweetfish sushi and meat-and-rice-casserole forms. The word makuno-uchi bentō, dates back to the Edo Period, when they were served during the intermissions of Noh and Kabuki theater performances. From the Meiji Period onward, Makunouchi has become a common convention for bentos sold at train stations. Convenience stores usually also sell a bento under the Makunouchi name. Though the selection and number of items in a Makunouchi bento vary from store to store, it often contains more items and costs more than other offerings.
