Hi, I’m bukicho.
I started Furusato Nozei this year, and I found out it’s such a great tax paying system.
What is Furusato Nozei?
Furusato Nozei is japanese special system.
To put it simply, we can pay our taxes and get a prize.
The site below explain about Furusato Nozei in detail, so you can check.

What did I choose?
I chose three kinds of fruits.
- Japanese persimmons（Kaki）- 11 pounds
- Pears – 11 pounds
- Apples – 11pounds
I paid 30,000yen(about $300) for these , but 28,000yen to be deducted from my final tax burden.
It means, I can get various fruits only for 2,000yen(about $20)!
Kaki came home.
This month, I got Kaki!!
I really like eating Kaki…it’s so sweet.
I’m looking forward to getting Pears and Apples!
