Product Information

In Japan, monetary gifts are traditionally given in elaborately decorated folded paper "envelopes" called kinpu. They are used for everything from birthdays to funerals, and their decorations reflect the occasion.

This white koden funeral envelope is used for monetary offerings to the family of the deceased, with the phrase osonae printed on the front with yellow and white mizuhiki. Osonae typically refers to a food offering but in this case, it can be used for nondenominational monetary offerings.


1. Place money into the included money envelope with your name and amount enclosed written on the back, preferably in gray ink.

2. Remove the mizuhiki closure from the paper wrapping and unfold to place the money envelope in the center.

3. Fold the bottom flap first and the top flap second. Make sure the top flap is visible when closed. This is important because the other way around is for happy occasions.

4. Replace the mizuhiki.
