Not another Japanese Week thing or a Syd Barrett story, just a 'cute' story to put a smile on your face.
Our friends at PingMag keep coming up with interesting takes on Japan with this this Japanese Cardboard Box Design report.
With these colorful creations, you do not need to speak Japanese to understand what's in the box.
My favorites are the Mikan Orange (pictured here) and the almost flying Tomato boxes.
Besides cardboard, I also discovered that right now, it is Mikan orange season in Tokyo and that another popular orange offering is the Hassaku.
