SHIPPING POLICY We quote the cheapest available shipping with upgrade options. We ship from Japan by Economy Air Mail (SAL) for small packages up to 2 kg. SAL takes an average of 2-3 weeks.
For large packages and packages over 2 kg, we ship by sea mail. Sea mail takes an average of 8-12 weeks.
For SAL there is no insurance or tracking number. For an additional ¥410 you will receive insurance up to ¥6,000 and a tracking number.
For sea mail there is a tracking number and you can insure for up to the value of ¥20,000 for an extra ¥400. For more expensive items there is ¥50 charge for each additional ¥20,000 in value of the item to be shipped.
If you would like faster delivery (around 5 days) with a tracking number and insurance included please choose EMS. This is much more expensive.
Please contact us if you require a shipping upgrade and we will send you an invoice.
PLEASE NOTE: We take no responsibility for lost or damaged non-insured packages. For customers within Japan we will ship by "chakubarai" (Cash on Delivery.) For this reason the shipping price on our ETSY LISTINGS for Japan is ¥0.
PACKING: Whenever possible we will use recycled packing materials to cut costs and to look after our planet.
International shipping from Japan is complex as each receiving country has their own rules. The above is a general explanation. If your country has different rules we will advise you individually.
