Well, When you try to buy a boxed lunch or a prepared dish you will be asked in Japanese as ” Atatamemasuka?” This means “Do you want this warmed up in a microwave?” Therefore please answer by “hai(はい=Yes)” or “iie(いいえ=No).”

Also, you are not asked by a clerk, but when you want to warm it up say “Atatamete kudasai(温めてください)”.
