Cooking with Umai: Miso and Tonkotsu Ramen

Adding Toppings That Enhance The Broth Ramen comes in a variety of flavors and the choices of toppings are endless! In the August Umai Crate, we included Miso Ramen and Tonkotsu Ramen. To make the noodles more filling and to create a more restaurant-like experience, we’ve garnished our bowls with common Japanese ramen toppings.

Questions about our new shipping method? We're here to help!   After making Japan Crates larger and more full, we had a few concerns about shipping. We had recently been receiving a large amount of feedback in regards to crates lost/damaged by USPS,  so we wanted to make sure that the bigger crates would arrive safely and unharmed. Since we were unable to secure the same shipping method we were currently using for the larger sized crates, we searched for a system that would keep crates safe and deliver them as quickly as possible without us having to charge for shipping or raise prices for...

Big Changes are Here - A Letter from the CEO

Konnichiwa and Hello! I'm Hank, founder and CEO of Japan Crate.

We’ve been listening every step of the way. I make it a priority to read every post on our blog/social media, and I’m constantly searching through #japancrate hashtags to see what our...
