I would never have paid over $20 for the small amount of "samples" I got, but my kids had a lot of fun testing everything. The experience was nice. I liked that they included a little booklet explaining all the snacks.
We appreciate the feedback, Sarah!
Updated as of the second month receiving this box - the content was awesome, I’ve special ordered (and had to search hard!) for several of the snacks I’ve gotten from these crates. The first month I ordered I did end up waiting about 7 weeks before receiving my box (ordered March 02 - they shipped my first box around March 20 and did not receive it until the 3rd week of April) but the second box I got the last week of April. I am waiting to see if this trend continues and it takes 1-2 weeks to deliver to my location in the western United States, or if that second box was expedited due to the huge lag in waiting time for my first box. I will continue my subscription, because the snacks are things you just can’t get where I am, and there is huge value to that for me!!
Hi! We sincerely apologize for the experience. While it is our intention to delivery our crates as quickly as possible, regretfully, we have limited control of our crates once they leave our warehouse (delays are normally the result of customs, weather, or the postal service). Rest assured, your crates should be arriving soon enough.
Will I still get the premium August box if I order now?
Hi! When ordering on our website, you are ordering the crate for the following month (example, orders placed in the month of September will be the for the October crate).
I just got my DokiDoki box everything was pretty cool. I just didnt get the Higemanju Gamaguchi Coin Purse (it was not in the box) but my daughter an I enjoyed the candy.
Hi! We sincerely apologize for the experience. In the future, if you do find any items missing from your crate, please contact our support team so that we may provide assistance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I've been a subscriber since March 2016. I have only had one problem: one box contained several lemon-flavored items and a bag of cough drops. Otherwise, I love everything. No problems receiving items or boxes, so I can't comment on customer service. I've tried several boxes, but this is my favorite. Last month I got soy sauce flavored Cheetos! Yum!! I am very happy with this service, but I do miss the Manga comic that they used to send each month.
Hi! We appreciate the feedback. For information on what tasty snacks we plan to include in next months crate, please check out our social media: @japancrate
We did love the crate but was hoping for a year of the dog theme- maybe a Shiba!
Hi! To keep our crates fresh and diverse, we have chosen not to dedicated our crates to one specific brand. Instead, our crates will include an assortment products from most of your favorite brands (including Pepsi, Kit Kat, Cheetos, Hi-Chew, Hello Kitty, Sailor Moon, My Melody, and of course, Shibas!).
Japan Crate is good for food and every thing else and I loved their plum blossom chips in their April box. The thing that gets is me no tracking and the 2-6 week arrival so you have no idea when it'll be coming.
Hi! We have chosen to ship our crates without tracking so that we can invest more in the crates (better items). We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
Received 1st box and it was great. It did take just over 4 weeks to get here, but they cant control that.
Kids love it!
Hi! Glad to hear that your family enjoyed the crate! (>'-')> <('-'<) ^('-')^ v('-')v(>'-')> (^-^)

Hi! We appreciate the feedback. While the tracking may be an option in the future, currently, if your crate does not arrive within 2-4 weeks (from the ship date), then please contact our support team for assistance (email@example.com).
