Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

CasaBento is one of the biggest online bento box and accessory sellers. They have a diverse selection of bento boxes, in all kinds of styles from cute-kawaii to sophisticated and traditional. They also carry other useful products for bento makers, such as 220V Zojirushi rice cookers - very hard to get a hold of in most of Europe, unless you live near a Japanese store. (Another bonus for European bento fans: they promise 2-3 day shipping here! For other regions of the world it’s 4-8 days, which is still pretty fast.)

CasaBento ships worldwide, and includes prepaid custom fees in their shipping charges (with the exception of the rice cookers), so you don’t have to worry about paying more before you get your hands on your bento goodies.

And this is the giveaway item that CasaBento is offering to JustBento readers - a Tokyo Japan Bento Box Set, with everything you need to get started with your bento-making!

This set includes a colorful plastic two-tier bento box with a clear top lid, under which the matching chopsticks and spoon (both included of course) slot in nicely. There’s also a cute matching color bento belt, and a drawstring carrying bag. The total capacity of the two tiered box is 580ml, which is a great size for adults with small to average appetites or older kids.

The Tokyo Japan Bento Box Set is available in eight colors, and the winner gets to choose a set in the color of his or her choice. The colors kind of remind me of those candy-colored 2nd generation iMacs!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I most definitely want to visit Giza, Egypt someday. It has always been a dream of mine since I was a small child, to see the pyramids there and spend some time wandering through a marketplace in Egypt

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would visit Helsinki, and I'd do it in the winter. I've always been fascinated by extreme northern Europe and the way they live/eat/entertain themselves in the winter. I think Helsinki would be a great place to experience that.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I want to go to Germany...Berlin or Frankfurt maybe...hehehe :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I've recently become addicted to Korean dramas...so Seoul would be fascinating to visit haha.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I used to say "Tokyo" but since I now live here, I must pick a different place. Someday I hope to visit Rome (as well as a few other places in the vicinity.) It seems like a really amazing place to spend a few days and my father's family originally hails from Italy so.... I'm also pretty stoked about going to Seoul next month.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would go to Kyoto, or Okinawa. I want to go to Japan so badly, it seems gorgeous and I am obsessed with the food :D

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'd love to go to Paris for the food.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

The Mitaka suburb of Tokyo to visit the Ghibli Museum with my husband and daughter. The museum features all things Miyazaki such as My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Ponyo!
Here is the official website:

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'd really like to go to Hong Kong!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Rapa-nui hasn't got any city, has it?
Well, then I try Reykjavik, Iceland! I'm curious about this lonely and cold place, I have read mythology of Iceland, and I have seen documentaries about this place and it's very beautiful. I would taste typical food like Kleina (a fried pastry) or Flatkaka. It's quite rare, but I like it! :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Probably Tokyo; Christchurch, NZ; or Rome

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I've always wanted to visit Hokkaido.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I've always wanted to visit Hokkaido, because I've heard it's beautiful there.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Cairo, because I want to see the pyramids:)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would love to go to Alaska, I am always drawn to the posters of the scenic places.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'll love to go to Tokyo and Sapporo!
However, I don't really care which city... as long as I can go to Japan and savor all those lovely Japanese food! Fresh sashimi is to die for!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Tokyo, of course! I'd even risregard my fear of flying to go there.
London is another place I've been dreaming of, but I don't really want to visit... as in my mind it's about Peter Pan and Sherlock Holmes and Oliver Twist and MAry Poppins, and the real thing would be a terrible letdown. So yeah, Tokyo. :-)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Would just love one for my daughter

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would go to Beijing. I loved my trip to Japan, but I can't help looking at China now too.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would love to go to England!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would love to go to Oslo, Norway or Reykjavik, Iceland. I have been in many different Danish, Swedish and Finnish cities because of work, but I would like to see all of Scandinavia.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! At least, that's what I would choose right now. My boyfriend is there for the next six months - being there a total of nine - and I miss him terribly. And, it's absolutely beautiful, with breath-taking beaches and jungle close by. :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would like to go to Dingle Ireland. My family is from there but i have never been.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

One city that I've never been to? I guess if it would be somewhere out of the US, and particularly the south.. I've never been up north! I guess I'd go to London.:)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Petra, Jordan. I really want to see the beautiful buildings, temples, and archeological sites. I've wanted to go there for as long as I can remember.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'd go to Bangkok to visit my relatives. They've visited me, but I've never visited them. I'd also love the chance to have proper Thai street food. I grew up with Thai food, but as you know from your adventures with Japanese food in various places around the world, it varies greatly based on where you are. :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

So, I have been thinking I was posting all week, but when I went back to look for them (no easy feat with 500+ posts to each drawing) they weren't there. Playing around, I realized that I needed to have a unique name when I post.

At least I still have time to enter in is one, I think it is my favorite bento box of the bunch, though the doll ones are cute too.

I would visit London, mostly for history.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Tuva, to work with and learn from the musicians there. It's a small, but unique place that I hope to visit. Check out Tuvan throat singing, it's amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY1pcEtHI_w

Thanks for the chance to win!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Since it has to be a place where I've never been before,
it would have to be BALI... I'm usually not a big fan of beaches
and hot weather, but you HAVE to go to Bali at least once before
you die!! It's a totally bucket list type of place :)

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

That is a hard one to answer....right now, this very minute, I would say Bangkok, Thailand.

I would love to go and learn about Thai culture, food, and people.

Thanks!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

If you could choose to go to just one city that you’ve never been to, where would that be, and why?
Tough decision but I think it would have to be Barcelona, Spain. Simply to be able to see La Sagrada Familia in person.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Somehow this is a difficult question... There are so many places i want to visit....
I go for Düsseldorf. I'm from Germany and in Düsseldorf there's the biggest Japanese community.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

It's difficult to choose just one, but today I would love to visit Athens, Greece because it is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the food, of course.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I think I would go to Paris, for the great breads and pastries. I might go to New York though, for the great variety.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would love to go to anywhere in Japan, but I won't be able to eat most of the food. Something about being allergic to soy. The second city on the list is Paris. I hear the food there is amazing.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would like to go to Berlin.
Everytime we decide to go, something happens, and we have to change our holiday to another place.
I would like to go there because is an historical city,many thing to do, to see and taste, and there is an artistic world very interesting.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would go to Nishinomiya, Japan, because my significant other is moving there for a few years for work. I've always wanted to see Japan, but this will be a great excuse to go, and eat lots of fresh sushi!!!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Positano, Italy. I've seen the most beautiful pictures!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Just like most people here it would be anywhere in Japan! I've been in love with the japanese culture since forever and being able to live there is one of my goals in life!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Right now, I'd probably go to any major city in Japan, probably Tokyo, because of all the interesting things I could find - from manga, to candy, to clothes!
(I love your blog.)

Helsinki

I'd like to go to Helsinki Finland - or anywhere in the country! I'm about 75% Finnish, and have relatives who still live there, but I've never been to visit.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

Bangkok. I'm so intrigued by the street food and culture.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

If I could take the kids, it would be Toyko, to visit Toho Studios (at least the outside) and the Ghibli Museum(in Mitaka. but according to Wikipedia, it's part of Tokyo, too).

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

If I had the opportunity, I would like to visit Dartmouth, England because my best friend lives there and though he has always come and visited me in the states, I would like to see his hometown since he always says it is beautiful there by the coast.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would go to Interlaken, Switzerland because of the beautiful scenery and extreme sports like sky diving!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'd like to go to Paris or some other city in France. Because I'm currently learning French and being around native French speakers would definitely help increase my French. Plus, I'd to try their food!

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

If I could go to any city I haven't visted, I would go to Montreal. I've always wanted to go to Paris/France (and still want to go), but in the immediate future, I want to visit French Canada. It looks like it would be beautiful with plenty to do.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I'd go straight to Paris if I could.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

I would love to visit Tokyo. I have wanted to for a long time because the culture fascinates me.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from CasaBento

If I could choose to go to a city that I've never been to I would go to Koganei so I could go to the Studio Ghibli Museum
