This month, we're celebrating our third anniversary! 🎉
What started as a two-person team is now a team of six (Japanese, French, American, Australian, Indonesian and Ukrainian)! And we've gone from printing pack labels on our office computer, to our very own warehouse in Osaka, Japan.
We've had a BLAST over the last three years and have made so many great memories. And can't wait to make more!
To say thanks to YOU, we're having a huge month of prize giveaways. Check out the awesome prizes on offer and subscribe to ZenPop in October for your chance to win!
ZenMarket, our parent company, is founded in Japan by four non-Japanese entrepreneurs. Today, ZenMarket employs 108 staff domestically (70% Japanese and 30% non-Japanese) and offers its website in 10 different languages.
The very first ZenPop Ramen subscription box is shipped...to Latvia!

Plush toys of our mascot are created. If you’re lucky, you might find one in your pack one day!
We ask you to name our mascot! You choose 'Luna' because 1) she looks like the moon, 2) there is a Japanese legend told about the rabbit in the moon, 3) she was born in autumn, the season for moon-viewing, and 4) full moon can be related to Zen!
ZenPlus launches, where you'll find some of our old packs at a discount.
ZenPop moves to a bigger warehouse in the outer suburbs of Osaka. The area is famous for having a 700-year-old tree growing in the train station!
