We ship internationally using Japan Posts EMS and ePacket. Your shipping fee depends on your country of residence (or the receiver's if it's a gift) and the size and weight of the order. You will be given all the prices clearly at checkout after this has been calculated by the system. Deliveries require a signature. If a signee is unavailable at the door, the post office will leave a notification slip and your package will be held for an undetermined period of time at your local post office. Please arrange directly with your post office to schedule a re-delivery or pickup. We are not responsible for packages that are unclaimed at the post office and returned to us. 

EMS (Express Mail Service)




Depending on the country, the package may be stopped at customs. This can lead to delays in delivery and may result in customs charges or import charges. We are not responsible for the local postal delays or delays due to customs inspection. We advise you to check the importation guidelines of the postal authority or import authority of your country before ordering.  We also are not responsible for paying any customs charges, VAT, import VAT, import charges or local taxes and we cannot accept returns due to refusal to pay these fees.
