My first box was the Original size ($25), which includes 8-10 items and a guaranteed DIY kit. They had a shipping delay and said their DIY kits came broken, but they made up for it by including extra items. My box included an extra candy item and 2 kawaii gel roller ball ink pens with an extra fine point. I feel they are very transparent about their issues. The boxes shipped out shortly after their regular time frame and I received my box in 3 days from ship date. They ship them out priority 2-day. I received a variety of items such as gum, gummies, chips, traditional Japanese candies, etc. It's a fun experience. However, you could do this yourself for MUCH cheaper even paying retail from their own supplier. I do it for the experience I guess, it's fun trying everything with my boyfriend. You can view their past boxes on their website and lots of their customers post to their twitter and facebook with pictures and videos. Do it for the experience!

They've listened to feedback and have improved both shipping and the way you go about managing your sub to them. For the amount of items that you get and the quality of the items the crate is great! I've enjoyed everything but one item( it was fish flavored and I don't eat fish...)

I was disappointed in this month's box, and I e-mailed JapanCrate about it because I felt hella jipped and they were just like "yeah sorry", they didn't offer to fix it or anything. Really bad customer service and not very impressive candy.

This box is fun for the whole family. It's amazing how much fun we have trying new and sometimes crazy candies/snacks from japan. JapanCrate does a great job of compiling and explaining the candies and japan culture in the included "Manga". The premium crate offers a great variety, even a Japanese drink. If you like candy and are a bit adventures, you'll want to try this.

I subscribed to this box after I saw it being recommended by Kotaku. They have 3 different sizes filled with Japanese snacks and usually a drink. I was excited to see what they would send, but I was disappointed. A lot of their snacks, and especially their drink items are not even Japanese. One month they sent this Halo toy, which is not Japanese at all... Being Japanese, I was a little offended that a company that Kotaku would even recommend, sends out non Japanese things and advertises it as Japanese. It's as if a restaurant which calls themselves "Japanese" serves Bibimbap or Orange Chicken. Also, they've been late with their shipments, so I unsubscribed. I was looking for a more authentic experience, with snacks that I grew up with and loved.

I got this box and forgot to unsubscribe. So I ended up paying for two months. I was okay with that so the second month I waited.... and waited... and waited for my box. It never came. I emailed the company and got a response. They asked if I wanted them to send me next months box to make up for that month's or if I wanted a refund. I ended up deciding I wanted them to send me the replacement box. I never go an email back from that person about the replacement box so I had to go back to the website and contact someone else about my problem. Finally I got my box but I haven't subscribed back to them and don't plan to.

I'm from Japan and it's always nice to get some Japanese snacks and candy that I grew up with in my mailbox. I've tried different Japanese candy subscription boxes, and Japan Crate has the best value. Since I live in NYC, I have a pretty good access to Japanese products, but Japan Crate still nails it! I love their curation and box value, and how quickly they respond to emails. One time, someone apparently stepped on my box (I assume in transit) and some of the snacks inside were damaged. I emailed Japan Crate and they sent me a replacement right away! It's always fun to open Japan Crate boxes, and it always feels like home :) Japanese candy and snacks are "different" and it might look scary, but it's definitely worth a try!
