BEST and WORST Bento Box Meal on Japan BULLET TRAIN (Shinkansen) Tokyo to Kyoto

  • Published: 01 January 2019
  • Traveling to Kyoto on Japan's high-speed bullet train the Shinkansen is one of my favorite experiences. But the journey is not complete without some food, and the must eat items are Japanese Bento boxes. And on this journey, I ate one of the best and definitely one that was the most disappointing.

    Those persimmons are not the eating kind. They are terrible. There are better types.

            If I were you I would throw away the item in the steambox. Then put the meat from the other box into it. Then turn on the steam

                    It genuinely breaks my heart when you open and prepare everything before eating. Why not do it one at a time so it's fresher?
