While attending MET miniture show at JCCC in Toronto, I came across one of the smallest wonders. A complete sushi bar restaurant including miniture sushi dishes. The creation of miniSQUARE, the decor was exacting. While others at the miniture show specialized in doll houses and gradens, this was delightful change of pace.

They also had several of the restaurant’s items for sale as well as noted below. Made with fumo type clay, this is smallest bento box I’ve have ever seen. However, this work of art costs. This bento model cost $30.00 Canadian and comes with miniture chopsticks.

Of course, there be those who could disput this claim being the smallest bento in the world. It is surely a treat to find.
