Japan Crate is a Tokyo-based candy and snack subscription service that packages and sends Japanese snacks to customers in the United States. Each month, Japan Crate customers receive a special snack bundle to ensure maximum freshness and authenticity. Japan Crate was developed by Hank Rao, who discovered that there is a limited supply of Japanese food in the United States.

How do I cancel my subscription?
- You can cancel your subscription in your account settings. Under your subscription, on the left-hand side, there is a button to edit your subscription. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the “cancel subscription” button. Please be sure to cancel your subscription before your billing date to avoid renewing your subscription for the next cycle.
Are there any promo codes or coupon codes to apply on my order?
- After adding the crate to your shopping cart, you will find a coupon code or gift code box below the total. Be sure to click the apply button! You can proceed to check out as normal from there.
Why won't my credit card go through?
- The Japan Crate payment system needs to verify the CVC/CVV code along with the billing zip code. Your billing address and shipping address do not have to be the same. Japan Crate simply needs to be able to verify the zip code on the card.
