Get as crazy as you can!


The best decorated scene wins a One-Year Premium Subscription & Limited Edition Studio Ghibli Art Prints!


You can use markers, crayons, paint—anything that adds color to the inside of the box. Feel free to add to the scene or get crazy with 3D elements! 


We’re completely revamping Mini boxes and the first ones will be sent in August, but we’d still love to see your designs! This means that Mini crates will be entered for community voting alongside new boxes. You can create an original scene on the inside of your crate, or click here to print & decorate the new design. 


Take a photo and hashtag #mrfuji & #japancrate on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Submissions end on Monday, July 27th and we’ll chose the top designs for community voting. Don’t worry if you’re not a professional artist, we want to see everyone’s version of the crate! 


The Premium/Original box winner will receive these two limited edition 11×16″ Where the Wild Things Are x Studio Ghibli artist renditions prints and a One-Year Premium Subscription!







The Mini winner will receive this 11×16″Alice in Wonderland x Studio Ghibli artist rendition print & a One-Year Mini Subscription!





Winners will be announced on August 5th!

**Please note: We think everyone should have an equal chance of winning our photo contests. Therefore anyone found to be soliciting or paying for votes will be immediately disqualified from the contest.

  4. Hey there! So I actually have a few empty loot crate boxes. Am I allowed to make one big thing with all my boxes or is it strictly one box? Thanks!
