What is Kizuna Box?

“Kizuna” is a Japanese word that means the bonds between people. Kizuna Box is a Japanese subscription box that connects you with Japan through carefully selected 100% Made-in-Japan lifestyle items and limited edition snacks sent directly to your door from the heart of Tokyo, every month.

As Japanese celebrate and appreciate the passage of time and the change of seasons each and every month with various seasonal goodies and festivals, each month in Japan has a distinct vibe to it. Our Kizuna Box is thoughtfully curated around a seasonal theme to let you experience the exact same atmosphere you otherwise would if you were in Japan that month!

Since Kizuna Box is a surprise box, its content is kept in secret, only the monthly theme is revealed, for the sake of excitement that our subscribers are going to get.

Please note that photos uploaded on our media do not reflect the contents of upcoming Kizuna Boxes. See past boxes here.

KIZUNA BOX – October EDITION: The Autumn Box

The hot days are over. Summer is in the past.
October is when Autumn starts to deepen.

The weather gets milder. The sky gets higher. The many autumn flowers bloom beautifully while tree leaves start to turn vivid red and yellow. As Autumn is the season of harvesting, the food is also particularly delicious during Autumn. The Autumn landscape in Japan is, in fact, an artwork of Mother Nature. Thus, it comes as no surprise that many Japanese love Autumn best out of all seasons.

In our upcoming box for October – The Autumn Box, you’ll find a wide range of ceramics and homewares, stationery items, and autumnal treats to enjoy the exquisite beauty of Japan’s nature in Autumn. Order before September 25 to get an autumn gift from Japan for yourself!

kizuna box: the team and the concept

We are the team behind the Re-Discovery Japan website and Facebook pages that have been sending you information for living and traveling in Japan over the years. Now we’ve decided to launch our Kizuna Subscription Box to make sure that the Japan that you’ve rediscovered is delivered to your door, no matter where you are in the world.

The items in our boxes are what Japanese actually use, eat, give each other as gifts, and want. We can confirm that since 3 out of 4 team members are Japanese and the other one is a foreigner who has been living in Japan for over 6 years. Thus, we know what makes both Japanese and non-Japanese alike happy, and we put that in your box.

Japanese appreciate and celebrate nature and the passage of seasons. That’s why for our monthly subscription boxes, we carefully curate items that are related to or inspired by the weather, nature, as well as seasonal and cultural activities of that specific month in Japan to give you the best real-time experience.
