Delivery Options / Postage Charges 送料

New mail category: "Surface Mail (no tracking, no compensation)". This is in place as a stop gap measure for places where air mail remains suspended to from Japan. There are two tiers, ¥650 and ¥800, which is the same to anywhere outside Japan. Please be very aware that surface mail can take 10 weeks or more to arrive and as in the category name, there is NO TRACKING and NO COMPENSATION.

There are five delivery zones: Japan, Asia (Pacific), World I (Europe, Middle East, Central America, Canada, Oceania), World II (South America, Africa) and the USA. You have the option of standard or recorded and insured delivery. Recorded delivery service varies from country to country, full detailed tracking may not be available.

Except for Japan, I have set five postage charge tiers: Envelope, Tiny Parcel, Small Parcel, Medium Parcel and Large Parcel, which are automatically selected depending on the items ordered.

Please note that the figures in the tables below are subject to change, but I always try to establish the best and fairest possible charges, based on (simplified) actual costs.

Special delivery category for the USA only: "USA Domestic". This is meant to be used for products from the "USA Domestic Stock" category ONLY. Please don't use this option for any other products, i.e. my regular stock that is not marked "USA" in the product title. The products are send from Florida by USPS. The price is a flat ¥900 and includes tracking.

 

Special notice for Canadian and Australian customers: The tracking for recorded delivery does NOT work within the country. The tracking number provided will show dispatch and processing up to the point of leaving Japan, but no details at all between the Canadian or Australia border and the destination. Only the delivery will be recorded again.
