Saki Yoken will introduce "Shinagawa Station 150th Anniversary Commemorative Lunchbox," planned in collaboration with JR East Shinagawa Station in collaboration with Yokohama City Museum of History, available for three days from June 10 to 12, limited to advance reservations, limited to stores, and in limited quantities.
Shinagawa Station 150th Anniversary Commemorative Lunch Box
This lunch box was created to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the temporary opening of the railroad line between Shinagawa and Yokohama on June 12, 1872. The "Chirimenjako (dried young sardines) and Nori (seaweed) Fried Rice" expresses the fact that at the time of the temporary opening of the line, seaweed was cultivated in the sea at Shinagawa, the "Negima Nabe" is inspired by the Edo specialty "Negima Nabe", which is a shioumai bento with fried marinated grilled tuna and scallions, and the "Komatsuna and Asari (Japanese horseradish)" combines Komatsuna and scallions, a Tokyo specialty from the Edo period. The "Komatsuna and scallion salad," which combines komatsuna and scallion, a specialty of Tokyo since the Edo period, and other items express Shinagawa and Tokyo's unique character.
The design of the wrapping paper is based on a brocade picture of a train running along the Takanawa seaside at the time of the temporary opening of Shinagawa Station, which is owned by the Yokohama Port Opening Museum, operated by the Yokohama Hometown History Foundation.
In addition, one of two types of "Shinagawa Station 150th Anniversary Commemorative Hyou-chan" soy sauce containers, the original design of which was created by employees of JR East Shinagawa Station, is enclosed.
The lunchboxes will be available at the Shinagawa Station event store, Omori Tokyu store, Granduo Kamata store, ATRE Kawasaki concourse store, ATRE Kawasaki store, Tsurumi Station West Exit store, Sheal Tsurumi store, Sheal Plat Higashi-Kanagawa store, Saki Yoken main store, Yokohama Station Central store, Sheal Sakuragicho store, and Sakuragicho Station store.
