A visually pleasing and functional lunch box

A lunch box that uses a box-type container with high sides called a shokado. There is a cross-shaped partition inside, with each partition containing sashimi, grilled fish, boiled food, rice, or other visually sumptuous foods. The partitions give the lunch box an attractive appearance while preventing the flavors and aroma from the other dishes to mix with each other, thus making for a delicious meal. The name comes from a container divided into four that was beloved by Shojo, a monk who worked for Takimotobo, the chief priest of Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine.
