This "ekiben" introduced in 2004 is promoted as oriented for womens tastes at 577 Kcalories.
It is sushi rice (made from red wine vinegar hence the pinkness!), topped with bite-size samplings of many local specialties such as deep fried ginseng fritter, local veggies, fish, crab and chicken.
I vote that this one definitely wins the "most variety" and "most beautiful packaging" of any box lunch. Time will tell whether this one will sell long enough to become a well-known lunch spanning the generations...
Generally, it is available for purchase only in this area of Shimane-ken, primarily at Matsue Station, etc..
Manufactured by Ichimonjiya Co. which was founded in 1901.

The temple and cemetery of the Matsudaira family, it is the resting place of nine generations of the clan. The site is notable because each grave is marked by a gate created by a master craftsman of the era and so, visitors can see the evolution of Japanese architectural art. There is giant stone turtle which, according to legend, rampages around Matsue at night. Visitors put coins on it's head for good luck. Highlight of our visit was the lovely old lady/caretaker who came to tell us the place was closing. She gave us free tea. Arigatou gozaimasu!
To get here is a 15 minute walk west from Matsue castle, or take a Lake Line bus and get off at stop#14
