Fukubukuro: The Sealed Lucky Bag From Design Tshirts Store Graniph In 2016

This article reveals inside of the sealed lucky bags I got from the clothing store called Design Tshirts Store Granph in the new year’s day sale.

Hi everyone, happy new year! It is time to shop the sealed lucky bag… I sure got some!!

What Is Fukubukuro?

Fukubukuro is often a sealed paper bag with merchandises in it. This unique bags are sold only in the new year’s day and little after. Clothes are popular merchandise in the bag, but it can be electronics, accessories, luxury wines, aged whiskies, and so much more!

Fukubukuro culture started as clearing the stock in the stores in the beginning, so many merchandises are discounted. Some people wait in line in front of the department stores on the new year’s eve in nowadays. Many shops and brands put their rare and worthy products in the bags, it becomes not only to clear their stock but to promote their products. In fact, many tourists come from overseas just to get Fukubukuro!

Good Tool For Communication!

Sometimes you get something you don’t want to keep (again, you don’t see what the bag contains when you buy it)... In that case, why don’t you trade it with friends? We do it all the time with nice chat like “Oh I love the necklace you got!” “Oh...I’m going to trade this with someone…” hahaha It is fun moment!

When I see friends for the first time in the year...

”Is that what you got in Fukubukuro?”

”You really got a good one!”

We talk about what we got and such.

Some people research which stores have what in Fukubukuro before they go to the store. They get information from people’s blogs, SNS, etc...
