If the post-holiday daze has left you exhausted, never fear- there's one still one last chance for a holiday surprise. In the eve of the New Year, stores across Japan put out fukubukuro, filled with a random mix of goods sold at deeply discounted prices. Fukubukuro, translated literally to "lucky bags", can hold anything from designer clothes to electronics and computers (the Apple fukubukuro bag is a particularly coveted prize). Brands across the country participate in this Black Friday-like tradition, and on New Year's Day thousands of shoppers line up outside their favorite stores for hours for a chance to get a particularly lucky fukubukuro.
To end 2016 on a high note, we're introducing our very own limited-edition fukubukuro bags. What can you expect to find inside? We can't get into specifics, but we've included curated sets of Rikumo favorites valued at over $300, for a special holiday price you won't find anywhere else. Perfect for the Rikumo fan, they also make great (already wrapped!) gifts for the undecided giver in all of us.
The Rikumo Fukubukuros are available through January while supplies last, but they're going fast. Take a chance in the new year- you might just get lucky!
