San Francisco, CA – December 1, 2015 – Japan Crate, the monthly subscription box service that delivers a curated “taste of Japan” with its hand-selected Japanese candy, snacks, and drinks, today announced that they have expanded their line to include a Kawaii-themed box called the Doki Doki Crate. ‘Kawaii’ is the Japanese term for “cute” and ‘Doki Doki’ is the Japanese onomatopoeia for an excited heartbeat.

The Doki Doki Crate will include 8-10 items, ranging from cute plushies/stuffed animals to collectible key chains, figures, miniatures, apparel and more. Each crate is $30/mo with free shipping.

In addition, all Doki Doki subscribers will be entered for a chance to win a giant Suteki Crate, valued at over $500. Suteki Crates are giant crates featuring the best of kawaii. Each month one lucky Doki Doki subscriber will win a giant crate full of the best and most kawaii items available.

“We surveyed our existing 13,000 subscribers on what kind of crate they’d like to see next and overwhelmingly we heard that a kawaii-themed crate would be best,” said Japan Crate’s founder and CEO, Hank Rao.

“We’re so excited to venture into kawaii culture with our new Doki Doki crate. We’re huge fans of everything kawaii ourselves, so we’re taking special care to choose the cutest and most lovable items for our subscribers. Each Doki Doki crate will be delivered with the same quality and service that Japan Crate has grown to be known for,” said Rao.
