3 Most Popular Classic Lunch Pack Flavors
Lunch Pack (Peanut) (140 JPY)
The Lunch Pack (Peanut) has long been loved in Japan as a staple Lunch Pack variant. The smooth peanut cream has that subtle hint of salt amid all that sweetness, which will make you want more! Even on mornings when you have no appetite, this kind of sandwich will probably make you want to grab a quick bite.
Lunch Pack (Egg) (140 JPY)
With a filling of boiled eggs mixed with mayonnaise, this Lunch Pack is also perfect for lunch. While normal sandwiches with filling have to be eaten in such a way that the filling does not spill out, you’ll be happy to know that you need not worry about that with this Lunch Pack.
You can apparently also pop it in the toaster to enjoy a crispy texture on the outside and a melty filling on the inside!
Lunch Pack (Tuna Mayonnaise) (162 JPY)
The tuna mayonnaise variant of the Lunch Pack is really popular among tourists visiting Lunch Pack SHOP TX Akihabara Branch. With this sandwich, the tuna and onions are mixed with mayonnaise, so there is no smell of tuna at all. The texture from the onions also pleasantly accents the sandwich.
There Are Sweet Lunch Packs, Too! Lunch Pack (Strawberry Daifuku) (147 JPY)
Strawberry daifuku is a Japanese-style confectionery of mochi (sticky rice cake) that is filled with anko (paste made by kneading together beans like red bean with sugar) and strawberries, and the Lunch Pack (Ichigo Daifuku) is the sandwich that reproduces that sweet delight! Inside the sandwich is a filling of coarse red bean paste, strawberry jam, and gyuhi (a confectionery with mochi-like texture that is made by kneading together sticky rice, sugar, and sweet syrup). Take a bite and the faint acidity, sweetness, and texture that you get will make you feel like you are eating an actual strawberry daifuku!
This variant is recommended to those who are searching for a sweet Lunch Pack with a Japanese flavor.

[Tokai Region] Lunch Pack (Misokatsu) (184 JPY)
The Tokai region refers to the prefectures of Mie, Aichi, Gifu, and Shizuoka. Lunch Pack (Misokatsu) is the sandwich that recreates misokatsu (deep-fried pork cutlet with miso-based sauce), a local dish of Nagoya City in Aichi. With this sandwich, the sweet miso sauce seeps into the cutlet, making it the perfect filling for the bread. The cutlet inside is menchi katsu (breaded and deep-fried minced meat patty), so it is easy to bite into and eat.
[Kanto Region] Lunch Pack (Sukiyaki) (168 JPY)
One of the Lunch Packs that are only available in the Kanto region (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Ibaraki, Tochigi, and Gunma prefectures) is sukiyaki (beef hot pot), a classic Japanese dish! The beef used in the sukiyaki is premium Joshu beef from Gunma. The sukiyaki also has konnyaku (a chewy, jelly-like ingredient made from konjac bulb) made from konjac powder that also came from Gunma. You might wonder how bread and sukiyaki can be good together, but if you try this sandwich, you’ll surely find the salty-sweet taste of the sukiyaki with the bread really delicious!
Recommended as a Souvenir! Choi Pack Rusk
The bread crusts that were removed to make Lunch Packs are remade into the Choi Pack Rusk. The rusks in each pack are bite-sized, so you can have this as a snack when you’re a little hungry.
Shown in the photo are the Choi Pack Rusk Tiramisu (100 JPY) and the Choi Pack Rusk Hachimitsu (100 JPY). The tiramisu-flavored rusks are made by putting mascarpone cheese, cocoa, and coffee powder on crunchy bread that has been baked in the oven. The hachimitsu (honey) flavored rusks use honey that was harvested in Ginza. The sweet honey is completely infused into the crispy, fragrant rusk.
