Greetings from Japan

Bemmu and Nachi
My name is Bemmu, I am a Finnish expat in Japan and behind this service. Sometimes my wife Nachi helps out. We try to pick interesting candies to send to you each time so you can try things that are difficult to come by outside of Japan. We really hope you will enjoy trying them.

How much candy will I get?

Japanese envelope size
Each month we will send at least as much candy as can fit in two standard Japanese envelopes. Expect to get at least 2 and up to 6 different candies each month. Some months we may send larger boxes.

"I can not think of any kind of subscription that I'd consider to be more worth the money or any other regularly occurring event that's going to be more awesome than the arrival of one of these envelopes."
-Matthias from Germany
"Check it out if you want a taste of Japan in your life" -Ology
"With Candy Japan, you can now get a taste of your favorite Japanese candies. I can’t wait to get my candy surprise soon."

Example shipment email

Twice a month after about a week after the envelopes are sent, we'll send you an explanation email to clarify the contents of the envelope. Below is an example of the type of email you can expect.

April 14th 2015 shipment contents

Milk and Coke

This month's shipment was a box containing three items. They should arrive to you by May 14th. The contents were pressed yogurt, cola gummies and sweet milk caramels!


Pressed Yogurt

These look a lot like some kind of vitamin supplement, but I assure you they're tasty! Yogurt is a pretty big deal in Japan, especially with girls, and these definitely taste like the real deal. The texture feels a lot like Pez, but the taste is all yogurt.


Cola Hard Gummies

These hard gummies combine a strong sour kick with a sweet cola after taste. I don't recommend eating too many of these at once though, because they're actually quite sour. Then again, I'm a bit of a push-over (ed.'s note: maybe eat some yogurt instead?). And while they're indeed gummies, they're some of the strongest gummies I've ever had the pleasure of eating, making them quite chewy!


Milk Caramel Soft Candy

Now these are some regal looking confectioneries. They practically melt in your mouth, and have a strong caramel and milk flavor. If you want to class it up even more, you can even make your own royal milk tea! Just heat up some milk, add four caramel sticks, stir and enjoy!


Life in Japan with Aaron

Having lived in Japan for four years, I've come to miss American fast food. However, recently many food chains have been popping up in Tokyo like Wendy's and Taco Bell. Normally I'd be ecstatic to get back into my A.M. Taco Bell run habits, but it's really not the same. It's too pricey in Japan, and the allure of U.S. style fast food means that people line up around the block for a chance at buying a taco for 300yen. I guess I'll just have to stick with A.M. ramen runs.

Wait a second. Is that a Cinnabon?


Life in Japan with Bemmu & Nachi

Had some friends over and we took them to see the Bizan mountain in Tokushima center. The views are fantastic from there!

That same weekend I took part in a competition where you have to attempt to make a complete video game in only 48 hours. The theme of the contest was "an unconventional weapon". You are supposed to make the game somehow relate to that theme. My game is about stopping hordes of pilgrims, deer and salarymen using an army of cats and dogs. 

Are you still active?

Yes. Our latest shipment to 769 subscribers was November 16, 2015. If you want to ask a question or just say hello, you can email
