ABOUT OKASHI BOX
What is Okashi Box?
Okashi Box is a subscription service that delivers a selection of candy originating in all over Japan. Once you subscribe, you receive a box once each month.
The contents of the box are different every time.
What is 'Okashi'?
'Okashi' is the Japanese word for candy, sweets or snacks.
It is our mission to introduce the Japanese culture of 'okashi' to the world.
What makes Okashi Box different from other services?
Our box includes region limited varieties of candy, which are difficult to find outside Japan. These varieties are only sold at certain regions or even cities of Japan and as such can be quite rare.
We are a Japanese company residing in Tokyo and this enables us to deliver these varieties.
What are the region limited varieties of candy?
In Japan regions such as Hokkaido or Okinawa sell special varieties of candy only available on the area. These varieties are usually bought as souveniers.
It is extremely hard to find these varieties to be sold outside Japan, but with Okashi Box you get these varieties with each delivery.
Can I buy the past Okashi Boxes?
Unfortunately we do not have the past Okashi Boxes available for purchase as we only have the inventory for the current Okashi Box selection.
I have an allergy or other dietary restrictions. Can the content of Okashi Box be customised?
Because of the limitations of our inventory the content of an individual Okashi Box can not be altered.
We do take into account allergies when we choose what to include in our boxes, but we ask you to order our products on your own responsibility.
