1. About Yokamon Bento

It was first produced in 2016 as a daily lunch menu item at Yokamon Cafe. Under the slogan "local production for local consumption," it uses plenty of ingredients produced in Fukuoka Prefecture.

In addition, the menu changes daily, using seasonal ingredients based on the time of year. The taste, carefully handmade in the cafe kitchen, has been well received, and the item is so popular that it sells out every day. Advance reservations are recommended due to the limited quantity.

2. About the Keichiku Hinoki Original Bento Box

"Fukuoka Prefecture Wood" exhibition held at this facility in 2020 served as a trigger to initiate the project to produce an original lunch box utilizing our prefectural wood in collaboration with the Yokamon Cafe, Fukuoka Prefecture Yukuhashi Agriculture and Forestry Office, and Ishigaki Research Institute of Nishinippon Institute of Technology collaborating. After having repeated trial production runs, in May 2023, the original lunch box, using a hybrid material made by stacking Fukuoka Prefectural wood "Keichiku Hinoki"*1 and an acrylic plate, was completed. It is a simple yet lovely lunch box that allows you to feel the warmth of wood.

This is Hinoki (Japanese cypress) grown in the Keichiku area of Fukuoka prefecture, which is characterized by a warm and mild climate.
