Fukubukuro is a Japanese tradition. This “Lucky Bag” is sold on January 1st. These bags are usually products that have been marked down substantially usually 50% or more. These “Lucky Bags” have been known to draw eager customers to stores in hopes to get great savings for a small price. What makes this so fun is that these bags are completely sealed at the time of purchase, so you don’t know what your getting.
This year 2014 many retailers in Hawaii will be participating in this event. Here is a list of retailers at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in Waikiki that will be participating. Here is a list of retailers at the Ala Moana Shopping Center that will be participating. I also know that Sephora, Waikiki branch only, will be participating as well. Happy shopping, I hope you find a “lucky bag.”
