Fukubukuro: How to Buy Your First Japan Lucky Bag?

Fukubukuro is an amalgamation of two Japanese words, fuku, which means “good luck” and bukuro, which means “bag”.
These “lucky bags” are a Japanese new year custom, and now have become an annual craze nationwide whereby retailers and brands make mystery bags filled with products and sell them for a substantial discount – you can buy products with a value of 3 times or more at a super affordable price. The bags are typically sealed, so you can’t peep inside.
