Bento is like a lunch box? I understand traditional bento lunch for school children is rice bed with pickled plum in center, that looks like the Japanese flag?
I have a bento box, it has hello kitty band around it to hold it together.
The box is lacquered, and red. I bought it in Japan.

American school lunch is peanut butter sandwich. Not very patriotic!
