Maru means “circle” in Japanese and is associated with goodness in Japan. Correct answers on tests are marked with a maru (⭕️) while incorrect answers are marked with a batsu (❌). Maru is also the basis for Enso, the traditional Zen Buddhist art on the cover that symbolizes enlightenment, strength, and elegance. Enso can be drawn open or closed and convey different meanings based on its form. Incomplete Enso are associated with wabi-sabi (the beauty of imperfection) while complete Enso represent perfection. This month, we’ve curated a delicious assortment of maru snacks to help you find enlightenment and beauty in the new year.
What's this box like?
"Was impressed by the quality and selection of items. Snacks for the month's theme (circular) was nicely put together and told a great story. Would recommend to anyone looking to try authentic Japanese snacks, and would also make a fantastic gift!"
"In case you were confused as to how the theme of “Maru” ties in: all of the treats are circle shaped! I thought it was a cute and creative idea. Everything was high quality and locally sourced, and you can really tell that these snacks were made with care."
