Apple’s annual “Lucky Bag” sale will begin in Japanese retail stores on January 2nd, the company confirmed today through a page on its website. Shoppers will be able to purchase a mystery bag containing an assortment of products at much lower than the actual cost of those items.

Last year’s Lucky Bags included a $99 Incase backpack and a Mophie Juice Pack, each with a custom design to match the bags. Each bag also came with one of four Apple products ranging from an 11-inch MacBook Air or iPad Air down to an iPod nano, along with an assortment of accessories for the Apple device. The bags sold for only $340.

Those products and prices are on par with previous years, so this year’s buyers can have some idea of what to expect.
