Yesterday’s post about rice paddy art had me wondering…and so today’s Etsy T-T-T-Tuesday is all about accoutrement associated with Japanese food traditions.

These little noodle bowls with a grass design are adorable! They come with a set of chopsticks as well and sell for $65 for the pair via Yevgenia‘s store.

So ridiculously beautiful! Look at the intricate lattice like design on this brass and enamel bento box. This could work for carrying snacks to work or to the cinema or even just to hold herbs on the kitchen counter. Love. It’s $30 via The Vintage Vagrant.

A set of 5 vintage chopstick rests. The simple black and orange has a nice mod feel to them which is what initially attracted me. $10 for the lot – in a lovely Japanese box no less via blue rose retro.
