I guess you guys don't like bean tea.

Great products, always flavorful and tasty. Excellent combination of tastes!

It's always interesting what I get and a great way to explore a culture without having to get a passport. Everything is always balanced well in the box and fits the theme perfectly. I am always excited to get my boxes and see what is inside them!

My trip to Kyoto years ago was the reason I fell in love with Japan. Thank you for bringing back those memories with this month’s autumn in Kyoto theme. The Yatsuhashi flavored snacks were very natsukashii!

Thank you to everyone who chimed in this month to let us know about their Autumn in Kyoto box experience! Doing this helps us learn how to make our future boxes even better!
