“Jubako” boxes are nicely decorated boxes, typically made of fine woods, in which Japanese food is served, particularly on special occasions such as New Year’s. Some jubako boxes even have multiple levels in which to stack the treats.
In Jubako, 2-4 players try their hand at treat-stacking, trying to fill their own box as skillfully as possible with rice, fish, and various vegetables. The domino-style tokens each show two delicacies and must be placed carefully and stacked even more carefully.
