In 2021, wives and chefs Niki Nakayama and Carole Iida-Nakayama opened n/soto along with their business partner Erin Wade. Both chefs are bringing their experience and history with Japanese cuisine to their new Ekiben bento series. Their first bento box was called “A Taste of Home.” The chefs said they hoped the tastes and textures of this bento will unfold a deeper understanding of the Nikkei experience and the evolution of Japanese food when it leaves Japan and comes to America.
