When we were visiting Tokyo, my wife and I decided to take a short trip for a night to Hakone, a well known mountainous area, home to hot springs and Japanese traditional inns. We took the train from Shinjuku in Tokyo straight to Hakone-Yumoto Station within the town.

When you take a train in Japan, you are encouraged to eat, and so we stocked up on a few essentials before boarding.

Train trip rice – 2,050 JPY ($17.96) per person

Fish bento – 880 JPY ($7.71)
Beef bento – 1,150 JPY ($10.08)
Kansai sushi – 950 JPY ($8.32)
Katsu rice burger – 223 JPY ($1.95)

Don’t forget to eat some awesome Japanese food when you take a train in Japan.

Price of those bento seem like a rip off for so little meat.

japanese food can be real boring with bland flavours. Still better than the average train food though, but i’ll pass

Bliibt Gheim says:

I hate it when he shakes his head and says: hmm, oh yeah.

amygmei says:

May I ask exactly where did you put the luggage on the train? I see you fit your backpack on the overheard. Would you say a check-in sized luggage would fit as well? My friends and I are doing this exact trip and we’re each carrying a check-in luggage (not the big ones but they’re surely not carry-on size).

David Chiao says:

Ask the store to heat up the bentos for you. Most of the store will do that with a microwave.

B Bee says:

Enjoyed your video, love food and culture videos. Pay attention to how to do family travel and places to go as a family as well, for the parent crowd. Great job

CJ Etherington says:

planesrift says:

I don’t really think they eat hot bendos.

steven xin says:

bento shops will be in large stations, and probably bento vending machines in smaller stations, but there’re not really many vending machines for bento

Loya Moya says:

Mark does ur wife eats? I don’t see her eating in ur vid whilte ur are happily enjoying your food

JAYA nice day says:

The Sushi Bento you had is a different type of Sushi from the usual one that most people outside of Japan know. The Sushi that most people outside of Japan know is the one called “Edo Mae Sushi” which came from the Edo (now Tokyo) area. The Sushi you had in the Bento is called “Oshi Sushi” or pressed sushi. It is more traditional and originated in the Kansai (Kyoto, Osaka) area. As you know, the Sushi was traditionally done to preserved the fish when refrigeration was not yet invented. So the fish and rice were preserved in vinegar. That is why you find the Oshi Sushi to be stronger in Vinegar and Salt. As your lunch was a Bento for traveling, it is often Oshi Sushi so that it can preserve and withstand the travel without spoiling. The most traditional Sushi is one called “Funa Sushi” which was where the fish was fermented using the rice. The Rice fermented to make Alcohol and that fermented and kept the fish from spoiling. Funa Sushi as you can imagine is an acquired taste and many do not like the fermented flavor.

Anyway, I am enjoying your videos a lot. Thanks for posting.
