② Ganso-tokusen-gyuniku-bento (元祖特撰牛肉弁当)The ekiben originated from the city called Matsuzaka, which is known for Matsuzaka-gyu, one of the best Wagyu (Japanese cattle) in Japan. It also have a more than 50 years of history, which makes you imagine how delicious it is!

③ Masuno-sushi（ますのすし）The ekiben is also a well-known product of Toyama prefecture. A bit salty trout is on rice, which tastes really nice with several drops of soy sauce. When you have a ride in Shinkansen(bullet train), I’m sure you find several passengers who enjoy eating Masuno-sushi.

④ Touge-no-kamameshi(峠の釜飯)It’s also a very popular and long-selling Gotouchi-ekiben in Japan. Touge-no-kamameshi is filled with various foods mainly from a mountain. If you are interested in Japanese traditional foods except seafood, I greatly recommend it.

⑤ Tokyo-bentou (東京弁当)For those who luckily have a chance to use Tokyo station, it’s worth trying! That’s because it sells only at Tokyo station, and is a masterpiece of the collaboration between some famous restaurants in Tokyo.
