The name Kyushu (literally “nine states”) is derived from the nine ancient provinces that formerly made up this majestic and lush region. In modern times, the island of Kyushu consists of seven prefectures: Fukuoka, Kumamoto, Nagasaki, Oita, Saga, Kagoshima, and Miyazaki. Because Kyushu is the most southwesterly island in Japan and geographically closer to continental Asia and Europe, it served as one of the earliest ports for Japan to trade and interact with the outside world. In addition to its historical significance, Kyushu contains subtropical climates that famously produce a wide variety of fresh agricultural products from rice and wheat to mangoes and sweet potatoes. We are thrilled to take you on a gourmet journey this month through the historic and beautiful Kyushu.
"This was honestly my favorite box yet. Not a single item I didn't like!"
"[The Cruz] are sooo good. I just had one of the originals. They had a subtle warm spice to it. Pacing myself. I want to enjoy this box slowly."
"Overall, September's Bokksu was great! My husband and I loved everything, and it was fun to learn about Kyushu. We both want to go there now!"
