Eki-ben - bento boxes sold at train stations that incorporate regional dishes or special local ingredients - have a long tradition in Japan. Celebrating that tradition, this very popular shop inside Tokyo station sells 170 different eki-ben from various stations throughout Japan - all freshly prepared.
