Pochi-bukuro

Pochi-bukuro is one of the Japanese tradition.



Many times, pochi-bukuro is decorated by shiny ribbons.
What should be inside?

Money! Japanese people enclose the money in it. You can't post it, bring it to someone directly.

When is it used?

For wedding (you should select pink, gold, red, happy colors)

For glowing up (when somebody's birthday, celebration for being college student....etc)

For new years day (Japan has a custom to give money for kids on New years)

For funeral (you should select black and white ribbon one).

So, when you see these kind of envelop at shop, remember, this is for MONEY.
