Japanese 'ekiben' boxed meals debut in Paris

The boxed meals that are sold at train stations in Japan are now available at a new store in Paris.

Hanazen, a maker of "ekiben" boxed meals in Akita Prefecture, northern Japan, opened the outlet in central Paris last Friday. The menu features a chicken-rice dish that is a best-seller at JR Odate Station in Akita. Customers can also buy miso soup for their meals.
