Amazon links (affiliate links. Clicking one one of these me a small commission, besides what I got for writing the book ^_^;)

Other sellers

I know that all the links above are to the big jungle company. That's the way the book world works more and more these days... but that doesn't mean that you have to buy from them if you don't want to of course! The information I had here about other sellers was very outdated, and I found it very difficult to verify availability. In general the book (as well as its sequel, The Just Bento Cookbook 2 are available at any bookstore where Japanese cuisine cookbooks are sold, as well as many stores that sell Japanese gift items, and some Japanese groceries. If you see it out in the wild, please shoot me a photo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram @makiwi!

Signed copies

The signed copies that I had out in the wild are probably all gone. I am considering how to get people signed copies, but at the moment it's a bit difficult because I am usually in Japan or Switzerland these days....far from most of you. I am still thinking though!

I'm also proud and honored by all the reader reviews it has received so far on various sites, most notably on It was also selected by the Amazon Editors as one of the top 10 Cooking, Food and Wine books of the first half of 2011.
