Cinderella 2 Tier Onigiri Bento Box


This is a very cute bento box!  It is has 2 tiers. The one tier holds the rice balls and the other can hold a small amount of something like pickled vegetables, meat, salad etc.

One tier holds 280 ml and the other 340 ml.

I would wash by hand and I wouldn't use in the microwave.
Temperature ranges from -20 ~ 80 degrees Celsius.



Family Crest Kamon Stencil Katagami



This was an amazing find. They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at about 25-30 years old . This is called "型紙" or "katagami". This is a stencil that was used to make "kashigata" . plum blossoms flowers as family crest.

This is very cool and handy for those who want cylindrical tawara rice balls! It clearly shows how to use it on the front and back of the package. It says that the rice won't stick to it.

It also says not to use in the dishwasher.

Katagami Stencil From Japan



This was an amazing find. They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at about 25-30 years old . This is called "型紙" or "katagami". This is a stencil that was used to make "kashigata" (for more information on "kashigata please see below).

This is really gorgeous! The shape is that of a "kamon" which means a family crest (which crest we don't know). There are no set rules in the design of a kamon. It most commonly consists of a roundel encircling a figure of plant, animal, man-made, natural or celestial objects, all abstracted to various degrees. Religious symbols, geometric shapes and kanji were commonly used as well. These symbols are often found in logos of stores (which help to identify what they sell), sushi restaurants, and on packages of food to lend an air of elegance. Senbei (Japanese crackers) and other traditional Japanese sweets may also use one.
