Kinuyo Sawano (Japanese: 沢野絹代) is the owner of Hokuhoku Lunches on Dobuita Street, Yokosuka. 13 years ago her husband passed away, so to help get over her grief she busied herself with setting up and running a bento lunch box business. Over the years the business has gained popularity and soon her eldest daughter, Hisaka, started to help her by setting up another stand at the New Yokosuka Harbour District. However, as the two of them became so absorbed in running the business, her youngest daughter, Mai, was a little neglected of attention, causing her to become somewhat of a delinquent. She lives with her daughters in apartment 201 of the Oiwa Apartments building on Dobuita Street.
