GoodsFromJapan Official Box

GoodsFromJapan boxグーズフラムジャパン段ぼろ箱 is now shipping its goods - most of them - with custom printed boxes made of recycled paper.

We had them made in Kyoto at a small mom-and-pop box printing ship - yes, they exist.

The lettering isn't quite as we imagined it (no fault of the printer), and perhaps a red FRAGILE or yellow JAPANVISITOR.COM - our partner site - will appear on the next group of 100 we order.

Until then, we hope you enjoy the new look - and please reuse the box!
