  1. I just purchased your wonderful Must-See Japan book, and it has proved really useful in planning my second visit to this amazing country. I do have a question however, regarding eki-ben, we expected to find them ubiquitously, well at the train stations anyway! Unfortunately we didn’t ever see them for sale, and we traveled extensively on our JR pass for 5 weeks, and most often in the mornings. Do you have any tips regarding sourcing these elusive snacks? Thank you, Sara

    1. Hi Sara, thanks very much for your kind words! I’m glad the book has proved to be useful. Regarding the eki-ben lunch boxes, they are usually available in the convenience stores on train platforms, or in bigger stations, there will be dedicated lunchbox stands and shops, sometimes with plastic displays (just point to the one you want!). They are also sometimes sold on the trains themselves. They are most common at stations/platforms for long-distance trains, especially the shinkansen (bullet train), so look there instead of on regular commuter lines. They are usually very easy to find, and usually come in plastic boxes, although fancier ones can be made from wood (or faux-wood!). Hope that helps a bit!
      Also, if you have chance to leave a review of my book on amazon I’d be extremely grateful! Thanks again, and happy travels 🙂
