This bento is in the shape of a Daruma which is a traditional Japanese doll, which in Japan has become a symbol of perseverance and luck. They are typically red and depicting a bearded man (Bodhidharma).
The bento includes a bottom layer of soy-sauce flavored rice called Sakura Rice, topped with chicken, chicken meat roll with greater burdock (gobou), chestnuts, steamed lettuce, pickled baby eggplant, various edible mountain plants such as bamboo shoots, greater burdock (gobou), mushrooms, and, konjac.
The Daruma Bento is reusable and has a slot where the mouth is located so it can be used as a piggy bank.
