JAPANESE LUNCH BOX on Shinkansen Bullet Train

Today we're taking the bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto via Nozomi, the fastest Shinkansen! To keep our taste buds entertained for the nearly 2.5 hour ride, we dive into bento. These Japanese lunch boxes are packed with such detail. They are like mini buffets, but in mini portions. Watch the video to see the food adventure unfold :)
