I've tried Japancrate and Tokyotreat in the past (which was great by the way) but Bokksu has certainly raised the bar for me. Not only do they have the cutest box but they also have a vegetarian option. Now this vegetarian option contains up to 3 of the same snack so when you finish 1 you still have more left, it's great for sharing. Moreover, Bokksu's selection of snacks seems picked out by care which compliments one another, there's a story behind each snack. It felt personal.
I really want to note that Japancrate and Tokyotreat has been very sugary with much artficial taste while Bokksu has more realness in their product, it doesn't feel like eating diabetes :-P Big thumbs up!

Maybe I earn to much money but I honestly love this subscription. Attention to detail with the little book is great. I bring some into work and it's a big hit. I really appreciate the effort to source locally made products and the stories behind them. The themes are great too as you learn about the culture. Customer service is fantastic. And I've not yet had a delay in posting either.

This is very inspiring for any child, lots of different tastes and an adventure into a new country. It's brilliant for kids learning Japanese at school - my daughter was able to read most items to me - and I'd encourage anyone to at least give a six month trial a go.

I had a great experience while trying Bokksu for the first time. I was confused at the first about the variety of snacks but they all are up to the mark, I truly enjoyed my box.

This is my first time trying anything like this, and I’ll be not been disappointed.
The box is really well made was the first thing I noticed even before I opened it.
The snacks inside were amazing, they may have only lasted 2 days :)
It’s a great product and having visited Japan this was a nice treat for me.

Best gift ever. I sent to my Dad for 3 months and he loves every single treat. He traveled to Japan throughout his career, now being 80 and retired it is a nice reminder of his time there. He loves the surprises. Takes photos and tells me each day what he tries. I will continue for months to come.

Boxes themselves are okay. My problem is that I tried to cancel my subscription a few months back, yet I'm still receiving boxes. As I am not at home when the Post Office attempts delivery, this cause problems - especially with neighbours who are getting sick of knocks on their doors asking to take the package on my behalf. Have contacted Bokksu twice on this matter, each time they assured me the subscription was cancelled. The last time I emailed, they suggested that the July box that was en route (I get a text msg when the box is posted) isn't actually from them and I'm confused. I'm just about to photograph the box (which is indeed an orange Bokksu box) and send a copy of the text (which is from Royal Mail saying I have a parcel arriving from Taing Danny, Japan) which will hopefully convince them to investigate why this is happening, rather than sending me rather terse emails.

Exceptional and great experience of consuming Japanese delicacies, I am very pleased with the service and customer relationship. The discovery of Japanese delicacies and snacks is a great experience, everything is beautifully explained from where Japan is coming. Thanks to Bokks

This box is pretty great, it comes with a bunch of unique snacks/etc that I never even knew existed.

Bokksu provides a wonderful and enjoyable experience! Their customer service is some of the best I've ever seen. Even when my issue was just a coupon question, they answered promptly and kindly. The snacks have so far been wonderful. Me and my wife have eliminated buying other snacks in our budget every month because Bokksu is so much better then the stuff we can get at the grocery store.

The box was appealing and exciting as I love to try different foods. I enjoyed reading the stories for each item.(Research nerd!) It was delivered quickly which was nice. I also ordered from another company around the same time and am still waiting not less than 4 weeks later! I hope the service and quality continues.

I just love it!
I have just received my second box and will keep ordering it every month.
It is such a delight to discover the variety of delicious snacks and to learn about them in the brochure sent with the box.
If you like Japan and its culture, I highly recommend!

This is an excellent subscription box. It was of very high quality. I started with the tasting box as I wasn't sure what to expect and I have upgraded my subscription to classic box. It it worth the money.

I have been getting boxes for a few months, and each one is full of exciting and fun snacks! They have all arrived within two weeks of shipping, and the contact I’ve had with customer service has been quick, polite, and helpful. I will definitely remain a customer, and I can’t wait to get my next package!

Be aware of the small print: you may have to pay additional custom charges! Unfortunately I was charged 12 pounds because the last bokksu was over 2000 yen, which accrues a fee in the UK. It is a shame because the boxes are a great tasting experience and beautifully designed. However, they are not cheap and the need to pay extra is not predictable.

I love Bokksu. It takes me every month on a journey to Japan. A small booklet gives me some background information on every treat.
Can't wait to receive the next box.
Review by Bohodelle6 months ago
I cannot get anyone to address my missing box. I have sent pictures of the billing/charges. All I was told was wait 48 hours and then I received a chat message about reading FAQ’s and thank you for subscribing. There is no customer service phone number and I am not sure the agents manning the chat line are really reading customer concerns instead of just replying with set responses.
I cannot rate the product because I can’t get past the lack of customer service to get my box.

Shipping straight from Japan to the UK was a super fast 5 days only! Securely packaged, no problems there whatsoever.
Contents in perfect condition with a lovely balanced selection of treats and something for everyone!
You even get tea with each box, which I find unique and very well thought out.
Overall very happy with subscription and will continue to be a subscriber for as long as possible.

Came accross Bokksu accidentally. Since my son is obsessed with Japanese culture, books and food, I decided it would be a nice gift for him! He turned 11 today and he was so excited to open nicely packed beautiful box full of different Japanese snacks! He was very pleasantly surprised and happy! He immediately read the booklet from cover to cover and tried first few snacks which he liked a lot. Thank you Bokksu! Surprise gift was successful! 😘
