Did the Summer Olympics pique your family’s interest in Japanese culture? The idea of traveling to Japan, exploring the culture, sharing new experiences, and cultivating memories together as a family, who wouldn’t enjoy that? The reality is many of us would appreciate the opportunity to be able to take our families overseas to explore the culture, historical landmarks, and share an epic adventure together but financing such a trip is outside most of our budgets. Thus, if you can’t take your family to Japan, what if you could bring a bit of Japan to your family? That’s precisely what Sakuraco box does! And it conveniently arrives right at your doorsteps.
What is a Sakuraco Box?
A Sakuraco Box is a box filled with authentic delightful Japanese tea time treats for your family to explore and your taste buds to go on a culinary adventure. Each month has a different theme and each box features local makers and goods sourced from small-scale that highlight the unique beauty and culture of Japan.
The theme of our box was, Hokkaido Summer.
Hokkaido, Japan’s most northern island, is known for being one of the best summer break destinations in Japan. Thanks to its mild climate and breathtaking scenery, people flock there every summer.
Hokkaido is also known for being the birthplace of the world famous Yubari Melon, renowned for its sweet and refreshing flavor. Alongside this, Hokkaido milk is beloved countrywide, being thought of as the highest quality in Japan. This month we were inspired by the flavors of Hokkaido, and are excited to share them with you.
The excitement and anticipation when the box arrived was off the charts. And as we opened our box it was quickly apparent just how much attention, detail, and care went into curating our box. And the amount of treats they were able to place in that box was astonishing, Marie Kondo would be proud, each package was carefully tucked into every nook and cranny.
We slowly opened each treat over the course of a month, reading about each, learning more about the Japanese culture, and most importantly sharing quality time together over an activity we would have otherwise never had the opportunity to experience.
The children had fun sharing some of the tea time treats with their friends. I mean, how cool is it when you can be the kid who had an awesome new exciting treat from a different county, and what’s more, it’s ALL authentic, even the Japanese writing on the package. Yup, these boxes are taking lunch time to the next level, Japanese afternoon tea time level!! Peace out lunchables, there’s a new box in town! Lol!
Next month’s theme is Mt. Fuji, order yours’s today and take an adventure with your family through the delicate and delightful flavors of Mt. Fuji!! And you do not have to commit to an entire year of subscription, in fact you don’t have to commit to 6 month, or even 3, you can literally just order the boxes that pique your families interest. So maybe you’ll never be able to take your family to Japan but you can make having a bit of Japan delivered to your family’s doorstep a reality today!
