Kizuna Box

What is Kizuna Box?

“Kizuna” is a Japanese word that means the bonds between people. Kizuna Box is a Japanese monthly 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 the 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! Subscribe Now!

The “Nihon-no-Natsu” (The Japanese summer) Box 
Kizuna Box August 2024 
The “Nihon-no-Natsu” (The Japanese summer) theme

Fireworks festivals have returned to Japan in earnest since 2023.

Fireworks festivals are synonymous with summer, and there are three popular festivals in Japan known as the “Three Great Fireworks Festivals.”

There are various theories about the “Three Great Fireworks Festivals” in Japan, but currently, the three are generally:

① “National Fireworks Competition (Omagari Fireworks)” in Daisen City, Akita Prefecture

② “Tsuchiura National Fireworks Competition” in Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki Prefecture

③ “Nagaoka Festival Grand Fireworks Festival” in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture.

Each fireworks festival has its characteristics. People who love fireworks sometimes go to all the venues during this season.

Fireworks festivals are captivating for everyone, from children to adults, as the fireworks disappear in an instant.

In summer, there is plenty of summer fun, such as “Bon-Odori” (Bon dance) and the Fireworks festival. I can’t wait for summer to come!

Want to experience this Japanese summer?

This July, we are preparing a lot of BEAUTIFUL JAPANESE THINGS related to the “Nihon-no-Natsu”, and waiting for your purchase with various wishes put in!

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 the 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.
