Are you feeling lucky?

That's a question foreign tourists will be asked this New Year as department stores invite them to follow the Japanese tradition of buying a sealed bag of goodies.

"A big theme of next year's lucky bags is 'Discovery Japan.' We want not only Japanese people but also foreign customers to know more about Japanese food and craftsmanship," said Mami Nomura, a spokeswoman at Matsuzakaya department store in Tokyo's Ueno district.
