Community Spotlight Lucie

Community Spotlight: Lucie

In this week community spotlight, Lucie talks about her travels to Japan, why she likes Japan so much and review our Peko Peko Box.

Can you briefly introduce yourself? Any social media we can visit to know more about you?

Hello, I’m Lucie from a coastal village of France. I’m a lover of music, literature and Asia. You can know more about me on Instagram @lousbooks 

Have you ever been to Japan? If yes, what was the highlight of your trip? If not, where would you like to visit?

I’ve been to Japan thrice already. My first time was back in 2009 during Christmas time and it was magical. Then, I worked for a year in Okinawa five years ago. Last time I traveled in Japan was last year right before the pandemic forced the countries to close their borders. Every time I went to Japan I visited a different part of the country. Every experience has been different and magical in their own ways. Next time, I would like to visit Hokkaido or Kumamoto, and to discover more of Japan countryside. There’s still so much I would like to visit.

What do you like the most about Japan?

Its culture, the way they incorporate the past in the future if I may say. They have a deep respect for everything past and it’s something I’ve been drawn to. Actually, I cannot put into words what I like the most about Japan because it’s a whole. It just feels like home to me.

How did you first hear about Peko Peko?

I like to peruse Instagram for more Japan related accounts and I stumbled upon Peko Peko during the time just before the launch of their first box back in August. I started following them and I am so happy to have found them. 

How could you review Peko Peko Box?

The care they put in every box and their contents makes it for a beautiful experience. This is something I really appreciate with these boxes.

Which item has been your favorite so far?

The card with the Kanji 夢 (yume). It has a special meaning to me. But really, I love all the items. The cup from the Kamakura box is a close second.

What future theme would you like us to do?

I would love to see a box about Okinawa, or one centered around the micro-seasons in Japan.
