At glance you will be surprised at the shape of bento box! It's cow!
When you open the cover the bento box plays music automatically, and that's very popular among tourists from abroad.
This bento box is filled with Japanese beef on the top of rice. It's called "Gyu-don" in Japanese!

[Sight] Cow-shaped package has huge impact on your eyes
[Hearing] You can listen to "Furusato," a nursery song when you open the bento box
[Smell] With a melody of the song you can smell the taste of "sukiyaki"
[Taste] Sukiyaki is the special product in Matsuzaka. Ekiben is the bento boxes sold at each train station and represents each of the speciality of the regions.
"Moo Taro Bento" has a bit smell of ginger and characteristic taste.
[Heart] Nostalgia come along with Ekiben and cordiality of cowherd from Matsuzaka are in the bento boxes.

The automatic music of Furusato from the bento boxes will repeat 20000 times when the sensors of the music react to light.
You can put the sensors anywhere, for instances, on tables, in fridges or in closets with the stickers.
Please enjoy the music with your nice ideas.
