 About shipping cost

This book is a collection of the most popular photo essays from ANA’s in-flight magazine “TSUBASA GLOBAL WINGS” in which Abe husband and wife (husband: a photographer, wife: a writer) worked together to cover handmade bento boxes from all over Japan. This is not a bento recipe book.

It is a collection of handmade bento shown shyly by ama (women divers), fishing pond owners, somen noodle makers, high school students, monkey masters, salesmen, and university professors……. As they ate, they talked about their jobs, their families, and their childhoods, and there were as many stories of bonds as there were bento boxes.
