Halal Bento Delivery Service in Japan

Japan Halal Bento Delivery

Who would have thought that a Halal Bento delivery service around Japan would excite Muslim travellers in Japan? I for sure was clueless when I first heard about this unique food delivery service for Muslims.

While Muslim travellers to Japan have been growing strong over the last five years, it was only right for a company to offer this specialized service.

First of all, Halal food in Japan is still in its growing stage, and there is a huge demand for this.

Popular destination life cities may have Halal eateries, but because the metropolis is so huge, they may be out of the way for some travellers, hence a Halal Bento delivery came into play.

Jaha Halal Bento Delivery in Japan

One company in Tokyo called Japan Halal Kitchen or Jaha, which runs the Japan Jaha Bento delivery, started this unique service in July 2017. 

The news of this Halal food deliver in Japan has also been the talk of Muslim travellers and has been receiving raving reviews from Malaysia, Singapore Indonesia and around the world.

The concept is very simple and straight forward where you order in advance from them, and they deliver the bento to where ever you are in Tokyo or around Japan. How easy is that? 

Let us take a look at how they run this operation. Japan Jaha Bento has an operations kitchen in Tokyo which is certified Halal.

All the food is prepared and packed at this central kitchen located in Omori-Kaigan, Shinagawa district of Tokyo.

Japan Halal Kitchen (JAHA)

The main company is called Japan Halal Kitchen (JAHA), which is set up primarily for the increasing number of Muslim travellers to Japan.

As the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are getting closer, the strong increase in Muslim travellers will see more demand for Halal food. 

With the anticipation of the Muslim traveller growth, Japan Halal Kitchen also plans to with travel agents that cater to Muslim travellers to Japan. The company also plans to work with hotels and event venues by providing catering for Halal food. 

JAHA is also founded by a team of passionate chefs and businessmen and has obtained the Halal certification to operate their kitchen. The managing director of the company is also Mr Martin Foong, a Malaysian. 

Plans for the near future include running a mobile catering service, but there is no information on this project. Currently, a local Japanese company operates Samurai Kitchen, a Halal food truck in Tokyo that moves around popular places. 

The company has also recently won the Best Asia Halal Brand Award in Japan for 2017/2018, making Japan Halal Kitchen an award-winning company.

Japanese Self Heating Bento System

What is the Self Heating Bento System?

JAHA also provides a revolutionized self-heating bento system where all you need to do is just pull a sting, wait for three to five minutes and your bento is nice and hot, ready to be eaten. 

This self-heating technology can last about 10 to 20 minutes, hence if you are a slow eater, the food will remain hot or warm throughout your meal. 

The self-heating bento can also be put in a freezer for storage, but you need to remove the food container for this.

Do not put the whole bento into the freezer as it will not work after that. Just remove the paper cover, take out the bento tray and put that tray in the freezer. 

However, you must take note of the self-heating bento and how to operate it. First, do not store the bento box any other way than flat.

Next, do not allow children to operate this as they could burn themselves. Always let the adults do the self-heating process before passing it on to the children.
