It’s time for Fukubukuro!

As the New Year is approaching, the Japanese merchants are starting to prepare their Fukubukuro (福袋). Not sure what we are on about? Fukubukuro (“lucky bag” or “mystery bag”) is a Japanese New Year custom in which merchants make grab bags filled with unknown random contents and sell them from the first day of the New Year for a fraction of the listed price! But there’s a catch, usually Fukubukuro sales can resemble war zones, and people queue up in the early morning for popular brands. You can now shop Fukubukuro at the comfort of your home, without getting crushed by flock of shoppers!
