Every New Year, people in Japan look forward to fukubukuro - lucky goody bags, and many department stores offer special prices and items during their New Year sales.
In addition to standard fukubukuro, in which the contents of the goody bag are hidden, there are now new fukuburo options that openly promote package deals, selling them either through a lottery system or on a first-come-first-served basis.
Fukubukuro packages offer limited-edition items, rare and luxurious experiences, trips, and subscription services! What’s more, since the spread of Covid-19, fukubukuro have become more accessible through lottery applications, online reservations, and delivery services.
Here we will introduce our careful selection of four one-of-a-kind 2023 fukubukuro available at department stores in the greater Tokyo area!
