If you can’t make it to Japan just yet, no worries! Japanese snack boxes are a great way to grab some Japanese treats without ever leaving home! TokyoTreat has an awesome monthly selection of Japan-Exclusive and seasonal snacks. But there are also plenty of other snack boxes to try too. 

One of the most popular options is Bokksu, another monthly Japanese snack box. But what is the difference between TokyoTreat and Bokksu? Let’s take a look further into what TokyoTreat and Bokksu offer.

TokyoTreat and Bokksu both offer Japanese candy and snacks – but what exactly is the difference? TokyoTreat focuses more on Japanese snacks and treats rooted in Japanese modern pop culture and unique, limited edition flavors. Bokksu offers a snack experience that blends some traditional flavors while mixing in some popular, mass-produced snacks. 

While both offer uniquely Japanese flavors and Japan-exclusive snacks, TokyoTreat’s specialty is the latest and coolest Japanese snacks! Japanese anime fans and people who want a taste of modern Japan will find what they’re looking for in TokyoTreat! From the newest and coolest Japanese KitKat flavors to limited edition Japanese soda and ramune

In your TokyoTreat box, you’ll score:

  • A Japanese Drink (Soda or Soft Drink – 180-500ml)
  • A Limited-Edition Japanese KitKat Party Pack (12 Pcs.)
  • Cool and crazy full-sized popular Japanese chips, candy & more with seasonal flavors, such as sakura.

In your first Bokksu box. You’ll score:

  • A tasting selection of Japanese candy and senbei, including soy sauce and sesame flavors.

For those who are interested in special seasonal selections from the very start, TokyoTreat is what you’re looking for.

With a new and unique seasonal theme every month, no two months are the same! So if you see something that you just have to have, don’t wait too long! It could be gone! Bokksu also offers many great seasonal themes, but as the first box will always be the same, you need to plan ahead.

TokyoTreat offers 17 full-sized Japanese snacks, while Bokksu offers 20. However the average TokyoTreat box weighs 1.2kg+ (2.7 lbs+) whereas Bokksu weighs on average 0.75kg (1.5lb).
