ZenPop is a subscription box service, based in Osaka, Japan, that curates packs of Japanese ramen, sweets, snacks and stationery and ships worldwide for free.

We know, it's serious business, so thank you for choosing ZenPop! You won’t regret it! 😜

Now, in just a few steps, your Japanese goodies will be on their way to you.

New Subscription Plans Available

Earlier this year, we switched to a subscription-only service.

A few things changed, but nothing serious. 

In a nutshell:

  • Subscriptions plans are now available for 1, 3, 6 and 12 months
  • Sign up for a free ZenPop user account before you order
  • Your plan will automatically renew, unless you uncheck this option

Why Subscribe to ZenPop?

There are many benefits to subscribing to ZenPop for 3, 6 or 12 months.

You can subscribe for a one-off ZenPop pack (select a 1 month plan and turn off automatic renewal), but we recommend you consider a longer subscription.

Here’s why...

Save More the Longer you Subscribe

We’ve never been a fan of math, but it’s hard not to love these numbers!

The longer you subscribe to ZenPop, the more you’ll save:

  • 3 month subscription plan - save $3
  • 6 month subscription plan - save $12
  • 12 month subscription plan - save $36



Less Waiting = More Time for Snacking

Nobody likes to wait, especially for tasty snacks. Now, it’s not a race, but you can get your pack faster!



Every month, we process all ongoing subscriptions first - that means your pack will be one of the very first we ship from our warehouse in Osaka, Japan.

All packs already paid for are processed on the 2nd of the month and shipped immediately (our warehouse is open 6 days!)

If you’re on a recurring 1 month plan, your pack will only be shipped after your plan is renewed and payment received on the 10th of the month.

Secure a Popular Pack

Nobody likes a show-off, but hey, our packs are pretty popular!

Every month, each of our four packs (Ramen, Sweets, Ramen + Sweets Mix and Stationery) has a new theme.

Sometimes, a pack theme is so popular, we sell out before the end of the month!

Save yourself the worry - with a subscription they’ll always be a pack reserved just for you.

Automatic Renewal

Life can sometimes get busy, right?!

We like to think of our automatic renewal function as your fairy godmother!


She looks over your ZenPop subscription and makes sure you don’t miss out on a month of limited-edition snacks or must-have stationery.

We’re all about being open and transparent, so you’ll find the Automatic Renewal checkbox in a prime position on the payment page. If you got this and don’t need a fairy godmother, then feel free to turn it off.

What ZenPop Subscribers Say

But don’t just take our word for it!

We asked some ZenPop subscribers why they, well, subscribed:

Wow! The snacks are really tasty... I do recommend subscribing or at least trying it once, it's free shipping, doesn't cost much and it's really exciting to try all of the new snacks. - A'Quila, USA

My first box, and it was a big hit. The time between shipping notification and arrival was really short. The added information flyer is also nice. - Michael, Belgium

I received the box really quickly. I loved every item and I'm super happy. I'm getting another one because the last one was so perfect. - Laryssa, Canada

Words can not describe how amazing and kind the whole team at ZenPop is. Thank you so much for the wonderful service you always give. - Natalie, USA
