Enjoy the ultimate hospitality bento boxed lunch box that captures the seasons at Kyoto Kitcho Shokado in Yawata.

Shokado bento is characterized by its crisscrossed interior and high rimmed lid. Shokado Shoujyo, from whom the name Shokado comes, was a priest of Ishinomizu Hachimangu Shrine. After he retired, the founder of Kitcho, Teiichi Yuki, saw a four-piece box placed at Shokado, a hermitage he established after his retirement, and invented it as a container for cooking. With such a connection, Kyoto Kitcho Shokado offers mainly Shokado bento in a refined Japanese space.


The beautiful cuisine, which stimulates the five senses and is based on the 24 solar terms, is perfect for special occasions and celebrations. After enjoying the cuisine while gazing at the beautiful Japanese garden with its pond and bamboo grove, you can also visit the adjacent Shokado Garden and art museum.


An example of Shokado Bento (boxed lunch) for Masa 8300 yen. The famous Shokado bento includes sukiyaki of Japanese black beef shoulder loin. When the lid is opened, steam comes out of the box. Rice cooked in a kettle is included.
