Makunouchi (literally, “between acts”) is a type of bento developed in Edo (now Tokyo), which is typically eaten at the theater during intermissions. Because the intermissions are short, the rice is divided into small portions to be easily picked up with chopsticks. The other side dishes are also bite-sized.
