Campaign

  • AmaiVegan is a monthly subscription box filled with scrumptious Vegan friendly snacks from Japan.
  • We will deliver AmaiVegan anywhere in the world, making the best Vegan friendly Japanese snacks available to everyone.
  • AmaiVegan is our second Kickstarter, following the success and popularity of our AmaiBox - Japanese Candy Box.
  • The SomethingJapanese family has been importing and selling Japanese snacks, candy & collectables for more than a decade, with thousands of happy customers in the UK, Europe, Americas and the rest of the world.

What is AmaiVegan?

AmaiVegan is a monthly subscription box filled with Vegan Friendly snacks and candy from Japan! Each month we’ll put together a box filled with a different selection of the newest and tastiest Vegan safe Japanese food. Each item inside your AmaiVegan box will have accurately translated allergy information from its native Japanese to English for your peace of mind, the translations will be carried out by our English and Japanese teams to certify that the items you receive will indeed be Vegan.

Here is an Example of the AmaiVegan Snack Box

  • Each month you will receive a box filled with a variety of the newest Vegan Friendly Japanese snacks, which will include 8-10 different items!
  • An AmaiVegan box will weigh between 700g and 1kg (1.5lbs and 2.2lbs) and be around 12" x 9" x 4” in size. 
  • The items will be a selection of candy, savoury snacks and occasionally even items you can cook with! We want you to try the newest and tastiest Vegan stuff Japan has to offer in a very easy and convenient way.

Why Make a Vegan Friendly Japanese Snack Box?

Over the 10+ years that we’ve been selling Japanese food we’ve always been hit with the same question "I’m Vegan, I can’t eat Japanese food can I?" this is a common thought in the Vegan community with Japan fans and people wanting to sample Japanese food just completely giving up on the idea altogether. But over the years our staff have discovered a treasure-trove of delicious Japanese food that’s Vegan safe and tastes great, after all no one should be punished for being Vegan, they should be rewarded! That’s why we want to prove that each month we can send you a box filled with yummy Vegan friendly Japanese snacks, that we know you'll love. Vegan food is something we believe in a great deal and good Vegan food is something we all want, so let us show you what Japan has to offer.

The Snacks!

Here are a couple of our favourite Japanese treats, they’re delicious, healthy and most importantly, Vegan Friendly!

Calbee Vegips - Calbee are the most popular potato chip manufactures in Japan! And their vegetable chips are delicious. Using only the best Japanese vegetables, Vegips are full of flavour and low in fat, a perfect snack for anyone!

HAPPY DATES - A relatively new snack in Japan, HAPPY DATE brownie bars have proven to be exceedingly popular with their mixture of fresh fruit and nutritious nuts packed into a sweet brownie. The flavours above include Rum Raisin and Fruit Granola.

Our Second Kickstarter Campaign

Thanks to our amazing community we were able to Kickstart the UK’s first monthly Japanese Snack Box. Two years on the AmaiBox is still going strong with hundreds of happy customers from all over the globe receiving a box brimming with tasty Japanese snacks every month! We have returned to create a Japanese snack box that can truly be enjoyed by anyone regardless of dietary requirements.

Pledge Rewards

We’ve created some fantastic rewards! They will give you a chance to try a load of amazingly tasty Vegan friendly Japanese snacks. All pledges small and large are greatly appreciated and each one brings us closer to hitting our goal!

It was thanks to you guys two years ago that we were able to make our original project so great, that’s why we have come back to create AmaiVegan. 

Stretch Goals!

We have a lot planned for AmaiVegan even after we hit our funding goal. Each stretch goal reached will unlock new rewards that will make your pledge even sweeter.

What Your Pledge Will Go Towards

All funds raised from this Kickstarter campainge will be put into AmaiVegan to make it even better! We are passionate to make AmaiVegan as good as it possible can be, to keep you guys happy and coming back for more.

  • This includes sourcing and importing only the best and tastiest Vegan friendly snacks from Japan and ensuring we get a large variety so you get something new and exciting each month you open your AmaiVegan box.
  • Focusing on translating every ingredient on every item inside your AmaiVegan box from Japanese to English. We want you to know what’s inside the food you’re eating because we believe it is an important part of being Vegan, so we want to make this process as easy and stress free for you.
  • We want to make sure each AmaiVegan box is packaged beautifully, ensuring that all items inside are in pristine condition when they get to you. Recycling is also so important to us, so all AmaiVegan wrapping and packaging will be fully Recyclable.
