For $29/month (shipping included) we'll start hunting for interesting sweets for you here in Japan twice a month, then box and ship them directly to you by Japan Post. Yes, anywhere in the world! Twice a month you'll get to try completely new tastes often not available outside Japan.
Each month we send you two boxes of candy, so you'll get surprises often. The amount of items in each box varies based on how big the candies are, but usually the two boxes will have a total of 3 - 6 items with a typical total weight around 500 grams (about 1 pound).
The boxes come every 2 weeks, but it takes longer for the first one to arrive from Japan.
The service was started by a Japanese-Finnish family living in Tokushima, Japan. It has been running for over 5 years already. We are transparent about figures such as revenue, expenses, member count etc. and publish these in our business blog.
The service is now mainly run by Bemmu, who is a 7+ years expat in Japan, with help from writer Aaron and several other freelancers.
