Here’s what our community have to say

I previously subscribed to Bokksu, but I am well impressed with the choices, packaging and supplemental information [in Sakuraco]! I intend to continue my journey with Sakuraco.

Whoa! The quality and quantity in these boxes (Sakuraco) are amazing. I was a huge fan of Bokksu, but I think I’ve found my favorite. I love that an occasional dish may be included.

Elegant Snack box subscription with souvenir and reading. Much better than bokksu in my opinion.

Sakuraco tends to have more mochi and... cake than Bokksu. You also get one item of cutlery in Sakuraco. I think if you like the more traditional wagashi sweets… then go for Sakuraco.

We ordered the 3-month box… We also do Bokksu, but found the Sakuraco box a more ‘mature’ selection. Everything is delicious
