Best Japanese Box: Tokyo Treat vs Bokksu + our Alternative

La meilleure box japonaise, Tokyo Treat ou Bokksu

In the world of Japanese boxing, there are two giants clashing. If you're French, you probably know Candysan (RIP), but today we will talk about two companies that are competing for the US and global market.

Bokksu, the $100 million company

Bokksu is an American company, based in New York, which has been offering Japanese boxes since 2016. Subscribers receive a selection of traditional and artisanal snacks each month, accompanied by a cultural guide on the regions of Japan where the snacks come from, as well as a tea bag.

Bokksu is considered one of the pioneers in the market and recently received a 22 million investment for a company that is valued up to 100 millions of dollars!

Tokyo Treat, at the heart of the trend

Tokyo Treat is a similar company, whose history dates back to 2015 when its founder, Ayumi Chikamoto, had an idea after sending snacks to her friends living abroad. Unlike Bokksu, Tokyo Treat is based in Japan.

Subscribers receive a selection of Japanese snacks each month, including sweets, candies, savory snacks and beverages, with a focus on the latest trends in Japanese food and beverages. Bokksu vs Tokyo Treat is actually artisanal versus trendy.

Tokyo Snack Box, the French alternative

Tokyo Snack Box therefore offers an alternative to these two companies, with a box that includes:

  • 25 Japanese snacks and candies (sweet / salty)
  • a small gift from Japan (bookmark, mini figurine, chopsticks, coasters etc...)
  • a "guide" sheet in English (or in French if necessary) for the products, with the list of allergens

This box is available in two formats:

If you use one of the coupon codes "BOKKSU" or "TOKYOTREAT", you will get 10% off your entire order, valid across our entire store.
