There’s nothing better than getting a monthly Japanese snack subscription box in the mail, except maybe if that monthly snack box were made of handcrafted wood! Bokksu is proud to announce a new partnership with Masuda Kiribako that will change the game of Japanese snack delivery forever. For more info on how to get your Kiribako box, keep reading on!
As you probably know by now, Bokksu is the pioneer in all things Japanese snack delivery. The Classic Bokksu Box contains 20-24 premium snacks, candies, and tea pairings, as well as a 16+ page culture guide to walk you through the details of each product’s origins, flavors, and allergens. The theme of the Bokksu box changes every month, to celebrate changes in season or bring attention to specific Japanese prefectures. The Classic Bokksu Box was already great, but we found a way to make it even better, thanks to our partnership with Masuda Kiribako!
Masuda Kiribako is a traditional woodworking company founded in 1929 in Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture. For decades, Masuda Kiribako has been hand-making beautiful wooden crafts such as Hakata dolls, pottery, ceramics, tea ceremony tools, shamisen (a traditional Japanese instrument), and of course, Kiribako (a term that literally translates to “Paulownia boxes”). Masuda Kiribako even has a few items for sale on the MOMA Design Store website, so we couldn’t be more pleased to be partnering with this amazing company and using their extraordinary wooden gift boxes to house our amazing Bokksu snacks.
Bokksu boxes are always filled with history, but now, our boxes are oozing with it, right down to the box. For just $40.00, first-time customers and long-time subscribers alike can upgrade their next Bokksu subscription box with a one-of-a-kind traditional Kiribako. With your upgraded box comes free express shipping worldwide, so you can gift a long distance loved one with a Kiribako for Christmas, or treat yourself to a bougie end-of-the-year-bonus.
Each box features a golden Bokksu foil stamp on the front, is made with Paulownia wood, a wood that naturally keeps out humidity, and contains a sliding lid to keep snacks safe and secure during travel. Kiribako are lightweight and provide lots of cushioning to protect fragile items, including unique Japanese snacks! Plus, each box is specially handcrafted just for you, so if you find an imperfection or two, let that serve as a reminder that your box is 1 of 1!
But that’s not all: Bokksu’s Kiribako is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving, because when you subscribe to Bokksu and opt for Kiribako, you can enter in a contest for a chance to win two free tickets to Japan, valued at nearly $3,000! There’s no additional purchase necessary to qualify, but you must be 18 years or older to enter and a legal resident of one of the 50 states (excluding Rhode Island) or Washington D.C. The entry eligibility period ends on December 31st, 2021. Further rules for entry can be found, where you can also make the switch to Kiribako.
Our Bokksu subscription snack boxes always make for the best holiday gifts, whether they are Kiribako or not. Sign up for one of our many subscription packages here, including three months for $44.95, six months for $42.95, twelve months for $39.95, or monthly for $49.95.
