We all really wanted to make a podcast, and we thought about how having people from all over the globe living together in Japan was quite a unique characteristic to emphasize. We came together in a group of five, discussed what we wanted to do, and Bento Bureau was born.

The Bento, a Japanese lunchbox, stands for our focus on Japan.

Bureau comes from our desire to have socio-political discussions. We cover various topics about Japanese society through our interviews with experts, authors, activists, or just normal individuals who have stories to share about Japan.

If you would like to know more information about us, the podcast, or the topics we are going to talk about, send us an e-mail or contact us via our social media channels. We will try to reply to you as soon as possible. Suggestions or complaints are also welcome, so don't be shy!

Best Regards,

The Bento Bureau Team
