Traditional Japanese Food In Adorable Pokémon Bento Boxes


New Year holidays are a big deal in Japan with the whole country closing up shop so everyone can gather with their families. They also eat something called osechi which is stacked in bento-like boxes and eaten over the course of several days so no one has to cook.

The food even has meaning, like shrimp to represent the elderly and beans to represent health or loyalty. It can even be had in a Pokéball-themed container that includes traditional foods along with stuff like hamburgers to make the kids happy. Each one contains a whopping 26 dishes and costs $136.
