About shipping fees
Free shipping is available to areas where Japan EMS can be delivered. Orders that cannot be delivered by Japan EMS will be shipped by FedEx and freight will be charged.
Your order, unless otherwise specified, will be shipped on the "second business day after order confirmation".
Delivery will take approximately 7 to 10 business days but will be postponed to the next business day if there is a national holiday in Japan.
All orders will be shipped directly from Japan by EMS (Express Mail Service) or FedEx to the address you specify. Please note that Japan EMS and FedEx do not offer delivery time options for international shipments.
- Attention -
There are some conditions that may impact shipping and delivery services. Orders may be delayed or suspended due to the impact of weather, pandemic, natural disasters, and the situation in different regions.
