dcdesigns> eBay bento sellers can be a huge rip-off, right? This is why I'm excited about the IBK online store...

AsukaMiyu> No idea about where they'll ship -- more news as I get it.

This is wonderful news! There are no stores that carry bento gear out here (Western North Carolina). I can't wait.

Yep, Biggie, I just got in the last bit of my bento stuff from ebay. Man, when I added up how much i spent I almost wondered if I should of just kept eating out! Can't wait for this store to open up!

I checked in with them today to see if they were still on schedule, and they tell me there's been a delay. We're tentatively looking at the end of the year now. Full blog entry here.

This is probably a good thing, since I went a little overboard when I found those Dollar Tree HK boxes . . . . :) I am so running out of room for bento stuff! :)

That doesn't mean, of course, that I can't WAIT for this to open!! :)

Ichiban Kan has announced a launch date of April 1, 2008 for their online store in their new blog, and there's a new Daiso discount store in Newark, CA (southern East Bay near San Francisco). Full details here.

Well, they debuted their online store yesterday at, with extremely cheap Japanese household goods and bento gear. Unfortunately their shopping cart function is offline for the next few days, but my initial review of the online store is here. (Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Ichiban Kan.)

I put my order in this morning (at like 5:30..) and I just got an email from them saying that they don't have one of the items I ordered. :(
I noticed that they ran out of some things pretty quickly but I thought.. *sniff* *sniff* Why me!?!

Oh, that is sad.

They did run out of things quickly. I looked at the egg molds at lunch time, and by the time I was home after work to order them, they weren't available! I'm going to wait a few weeks and let them restock after the first wave.

I wish Ichibankan would sell onigiri cases (Not just those tiny ones that carry one) and those little wrappers that you wrap the onigiri in. They're so cute!
