The best mail delivery box possible

There are a whole host of reasons why I’m constantly impressed with mail delivery services here in Japan. They’re quick, they work rain, hail, or shine, and nothing ever gets lost or goes missing - at least in my experience so far.

One of the other things I just can’t get over is how clever their box design is. We got a care package from my in laws this past week, and the box was shaped like one of the Black Cat delivery trucks! I’ve got young children so this was extra exciting for them - a ready made truck to climb into and play with. Best of all, it’s a clever way to reuse a box as a toy -- and we can still recycle it once the novelty value has worn off.

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    Very cute! I'll probably end up sticking to just endlessly reusing boxes that I receive in the mail myself, but that box of yours is awesome! My son would love it.
