Kajin Sushi Bar & Rayjin Teppanyaki

Kajin 花神 is a contemporary Japanese sushi bar in Bali. The name is derived from the Japanese words Ka (Flower) and Jin (divine being). Using quality ingredients available, and serving various sushi and sashimi both traditional and modern, Kajin has become one favourite restaurants in Bali.

Rayjin 雷神 Teppanyaki Dining Bar is a fusion of Japanese cuisine adjusted to Western and local tastes, with well-chosen high-quality raw materials treated with a classy teppanyaki cooking style. Unlike the typical teppanyaki restaurant that pays too much attention to the showmanship of the chef, Rayjin prioritises its food quality and dining experience, resulting in a casual dining bar with that little bit of fun factor watching the team create a wide array of dishes.

The project is to create iconic takeaway packaging for both brands, keeping in mind the sustainability factor to reduce unnecessary paper waste. Obi (帯, おび), a sash for traditional Japanese outfits is the main inspiration behind it. The obi is used as the lock and grip for the boxes stack which is designed to hold up to five boxes. The takeaway box remains simple white to reduce ink usage and for consistency of both brands, while the personalisation is applied to each obi. The combination of box and paper bag function creates not only functional but also iconic and playful packaging that reflects both brands perfectly.
