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!

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. Read customers’ reviews on our Facebook Page and Cratejoy Listing!

The “Umi-no-hi” (the Marine festival) Box

Kizuna Box JULY 2023 
The “Umi-no-hi” (the Marine festival) theme

Now!  For the July theme announcement time!
This July’s theme is “Umi-no-hi” (the Marine festival).

“Umi-no-hi” is one of the national holidays set on the third Monday of July every year.
Marine Day is a day to express gratitude for the blessings of the sea and to wish for the prosperity of Japan as a maritime nation.
Japan has developed with many blessings from the sea. “Umi-no-hi” can be said to be a national holiday unique to Japan, an island nation surrounded by the sea.
The “Tsuyu” (rainy season) is over, and summer is just around the corner.
Why don’t you feel the beautiful Japanese sea in your room?

This July, we prepare a lot of BEAUTIFUL JAPANESE THINGS related to the “Umi-no-hi” (the Marine festival), and waiting for your purchase with various wishes put in!

Subscribe by June 25 to get the “Umi-no-hi” Box delivered straight from Japan to your door!


 ★For areas where Japan Post has not resumed service, we will use “Yamato Transport International Freight”. At that time, you will receive an email from us asking for a “phone number”. Please do not miss that email. Please note that if you do not provide us with your “phone number”, we will send it to you by “Surface mail with tracking number”.

★ We have increased the price of regular purchases from the order on April 26th.  Please check our e-mail newsletter and SNS for the details of the price increase. Thank you.

The product price has been changed

Dear subscribers.

This is Kizuna Box Team.
Thank you for enjoying shopping at Kizuna Box.

We have a notification about the shipping fee change and the carrier.
This change is to ensure that we can deliver our box to you and make our box a box that you will love for a long time.
The change will be made from purchases after April 26th 2023.

Currently, Japan Post has resumed “international parcel post (airmail)” to many countries, but the shipping fee was as high as $40.00 USD.
Therefore, we used Yamato International Freight, which is relatively inexpensive, to deliver the box to you. At this time, the shipping fee was $30.00 USD.
However, due to the deterioration of the world situation, Yamato Transport Co., Ltd. International Freight also raised the shipping fee, and the shipping fee to many countries increased by more than US$13.00.
Therefore, we decided to use Japan Post for many countries that used Yamato Transport International Freight.
With this change, we will be able to deliver the box speedily, and we will be able to include the Snack that everyone was looking forward to.

For “airmail” excluding EMS, a shipping fee of 1Box / $10.00 USD will be added.

<Price change>

・ Kizuna Lifestyle Box from Japan (By Air delivery)
 $ 64.99 USD → New price $ 74.99 USD

・ Kizuna Lifestyle Box from Japan (By EMS / using mail)
 $94.99 USD → No change.

・ Kizuna Lifestyle Box from Japan (by surface mail No tracking number (By SEA))
 $54.99 USD → No change

* These are Monthly prices. Please check the product page or our e-mail newsletter for prices for 3 months / 6 months.
This price change will be applied from the 5/15 update.

<Carrier change>

Yamato Transport → Japan Post

<Notes for those who are currently subscribed>
Currently, we are sending a separate email about the price change to those who are enjoying our subscription.
Please read the individual emails carefully and be sure to reply to us.
If we do not hear from you, we will ship from the June box by “surface mail with a tracking number”.
This method keeps the current price but takes longer than 3 months to deliver the box.
Also, if you are currently subscribing and have not received an email, please contact us.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
I am very pleased to deliver our box to you.
We hope you and your loved ones are safe and happy.
Enjoy your awesome day.

Best regards.

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.
