Fukubukuro / Lucky Bag: a Japanese New Year’s tradition.
It’s that time of year again! Time for literally the best sale in jiujitsu. Every year, without fail, we smash out our Lucky Bags on New Years Day. The internet tubes are primed, the server computers have been vacuumed, and the shipping bags have been ironed.
When I lived in Japan, always remember shopping at Isami or Ground Cobra (two martial arts / pro wrestling stores) in Fukuoka during the Lucky Bag Sales. On January 1st, almost all stores in Japan release these “lucky bags”. You choose the size of your garment and pick up a bag. The bag always contains higher value items than the amount you paid for it. Part of the excitement, though, comes from not knowing what products you’re going to get. You might get something limited edition, you might get something brand new, you might get something that you’d never buy yourself but, actually, you quite like once you open it.
Join us on January 1st for our annual lucky bag sale here at Scramble. We post out orders starting around January 3rd, bear with us. It may take a few days to process all the orders.
Stock is limited and customers may order a maximum of one lucky bag per style.
