♡ January Japan Crate [[UNBOXING]] ♡


Wah! My last Japan Crate until further notice... I hope to be able to re-subscribe in the near future though! But until then, I shall savour my last few pieces I have left lying around.

So just to re-cap, Japan Crate is that you can subscribe to three different kinds of boxes; mini, original and premium with either a recurring monthly payment (from $12 plus p&p) or you can pay for either 3, 6 or 12 months worth of boxes, therefore saving you a bit of cash at the end of it. You can cancel at any given time, so if you fancied just one box then you can enjoy one box without the pressure of payments. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.
I must admit, I was a little gutted over this box as there had been a problem with a shipment of one of the items (the DIY kit) and for a replacement, J.C put in a replacement item that could have been, at least, twice as much worth in value than the DIY kit and well............ I got hi-chew which isn't that expensive at all and I probably sound selfish right now... but boo. But it's OK, I haven't let it get to me whatsoever and I've enjoyed my last box to its full potential!

First off was the mini box items; usushi (light salted) crisps, ju-c short cake, milk chocolate pocky, hello kitty strawberry pretzel and asahi calpis gummy

Secondly are the added original box items; sparkling orange gummy, fit's strawberry & cream gum, pokemon pineapple candy and yam white chocolates

Finally, these are the added premium items; gaba infused stress relieving milk chocolate,, pizza pretz, sukitto lemon c drink, grape flavoured hi-chew & stationary items

So there we have it! Despite feeling slightly disappointed with this box, there were some extremely yummy items. The one that surprised me the most was the yam white chocolates... there was only a hint of yam? But I liked that it wasn't overly... yammy (oh goodness I am sorry for this) Also, I'm really enjoying DIY kits! I can see why people like them as watching the product you're making unfold before your eyes, well, it's magical almost!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Looks so yummy! I always think Japanese snacks have packaging which makes them taste better because it's always so cute ^^ When I was in Japan last Christmas I went a bit crazy with snacks and ate them all before I could pack them in my suitcase to bring back ._. Thanks for sharing what you got in your box! <3

  2. Oooh I am so tempted to subscribe to this, even if it for three months! I like that you get a drink with it; makes it a bit different to the other services!
    Have you looked at Japan Candy Box? That might be a cheaper service. It is all sweet, and I have just remembered you like savoury things! :) d'oh!

  3. Looks like a fairly decent box, I don't think I'll ever re-sub to Japan Crate though purely because of the shipping :(
