New Year in Japan means trying your luck with a fukubukoro, lucky bags sold at stores around the country filled with all different kinds of goodies. The contents of each and every bag can differ and are usually a complete mystery, making it an exciting experience! A lot of the time the contents are worth more than what you pay for the fukubukuro, so you can get your hands on some great things at a bargain price. We’ve listed some recommended places where you can get your own fukubukuro.
