The secret of the price is in the lunch box. This bento box is decorated with Nikko's traditional craft "Nikko carving".
Nikko carving began as an extra skill made by engravers gathered from all over the country to build Nikko Toshogu. The bento box of "Nikko Buried Treasure Bento" is a generous introduction of that traditional technique to the bento box.
The bento box and chopsticks of the Nikko Buried Treasure Bento are Nikko carved and lacquered works by "Murakami Toyohachi Shoten", which was founded 100 years ago. It is a lifelong work of art that can be used as a lunch box even after eating the food packed inside.
Packed in this gorgeous lunch box are "Nikko sushi", "Nikko princess sushi", "Barachirashi (used for Hokkaido sashimi)", "Steak (A5 rank Tochigi Japanese beef fin steak)", and "Salt-grilled car shrimp" "Kyushu car shrimp used)" "Caviar (Beluga)" "Fried roll Yuba (Nikko City Matsubaya domestic soybeans used)" "Nikko Sashimi Yuba (Nikko City Matsubaya domestic soybeans used)" "Pickles (Nikko City Kekko pickles)" After all it is a very luxurious dish. There is no disguise of the production area!
