Fukubukuros (Lucky Bags) are surprise packages that are sold on the first sale of the New Year in Japan. We often make lines to buy one as they always consist of more valuable products than the list prices fortunately, though they are sealed in order for the contents not to be seen. If you like those items inside, you are luckier. It's a kind of a lottery. That's why we call it the "Fuku"(lucky) -"bukuro" (bag).
ARANZI ARONZO sells Fukubukuros. On every first sale of the New Year, lots of customers form long, long lines in front of our shops from early cold morning.
ARANZI NET INTERNATIONAL ONLINE SHOP has decided to launch the limited edition Aranzi Fukubukuro 2012 for overseas customers. This is the seventh year since we first started selling lucky bags. To our great pleasure, repeat buyers are increasing every year."
