07.September.2017 | FOOD
Pre-orders for the 2018 “One Piece Osechi” opened on September 4th.
“One Piece Osechi 2018” is an authentic osechi containing two tiers with 31 different foods – one with pirate seafood and the other with different Luffy meats.
An ‘osechi’ is similar to a bento box – they are filled with food to be eaten during New Year’s. The One Piece osechi is packed full of all the must-have food goodies to appease the appetites of kids and young people, put together by well-established osechi maker stores.
The top of the osechi box features the Straw Hat Pirates and includes a plate with an original illustration, chopsticks branded with the logo, a super cool wrapping cloth and more, proving the worth of this year’s osechi release filled to the brim with limited edition items with original illustrations. And since the osechi will arrive as it is and already refrigerated there is no need to worry about defrosting or having to arrange the food.
Begin your 2018 with the all-new One Piece osechi!
