Much like it has done in recent years, Apple’s annual ‘Lucky Bag’ sale through Apple retail stores is about to kick off in Japan. The tradition is something that many retailers in the country take part in by offering a mystery bag of goods that are often sold for much less than the total sum of the goods inside.

We’ll have to wait until customers get their hands on the lucky bags next week to find out what’s inside, but in past years the roughly $350 gift bag has included items such as headphones, an iPod touch, cases, Apple t-shirts, and other accessories.
